White-winged Black Tern at Rutland

As I'm driving down the A1 today news came through of a White-winged Black Tern on Lagoon 4 at Rutland Water so I made the ten mile detour and paid the £5,70 entrance fee before walking out to Lagoon 4. I failed to find the Tern on the lagoon so starting searching other hides before finally finding it from Lapwing Hide. It returned to lagoon 4 to rest between feeds and I managed a record shot of it both in flight and sitting on it's roost stone.

With Garden Warbler also seen today the year list now sits at 233.
