7.5.16.

Saturday…It felt a lot colder than the early morning temperature of 11ºC suggested. It was also overcast and muggy 18ºC by noon.

A photo from yesterday to start with. It’s taken by Deborah George on HC of a male Cuckoo. It’s also a lot better than I have managed this year so far…

Me and Ken decided on another trip to Belvide Reservoir today. Mainly to see if we could see and photograph a Black Tern. With the light conditions this proved very hard, especially with the bird staying in the middle of the Reservoir. So here are the best I managed after several distant fly pasts…
