Did anybody look for the white-winged black tern this afternoon or this evening, bearing in mind that it also wasn't seen before 9:55 on either Wednesday or Thursday?

After a very upsetting morning at home (can't go into it) I just wanted to head out somewhere to blow the cobwebs away. So a visit to High Rid was in order. Having been here before it was easily found but many thanks Ian for suggesting the route in from a few posts ago, made it a very short walk smile I picked up GM Birder David Wells on the lane since he had parked on the main road at the top instead of braving the pot-holes! We both had excellent views of the White-winged Black Tern, including fly pasts at a few metres. I camped out for nearly an hour near the orange buoy hoping to digiscope the bird but alas it never landed. Still what a cracker & the traffic was kind on the way home too smile

Apparently the white-winged black tern was missing until about 11.15am this morning. Worth bearing in mind if anybody plans to go early tomorrow, because there was also negative news on Birdguides yesterday morning.

Turn off the B6402 onto Old Kiln Lane, which then becomes High Rid Lane. There are several parking places alongside this track (were it widens out) which can be quite bumpy in a couple of spots. There is a footpath (fairly obvious and is quite muddy along the lane where the path is) off to through the fields just east of the reservoir itself which takes you to it or otherwise you can park by the small yacht club in the south west corner of the reservoir and access there. The reservoir itself is open access and the bird is active around the entire water but does occasionally like to rest on the small orange buoy just off the eastern side.
