On our way home from Manchester last night I got the message about the White winged Black Tern at East Chevington Pools, so as we were only about five miles away, we popped in. The bird showed quite well though distantly as it hawked over the surface of the north pool. Much too far off for a photo, so this is a picture of a former WWBT at East Chev that I had published as part of a Northumberland and Tyneside Bird Club Annual Report...
Once these birds were mega rarities in the county, now they turn up just about bi-annually!
Very nice indeed, especially as it had gone by this morning.
