Avoiding the wetland stuff

The 22nd May and despite dropping into likely wet localities, the lack of wader habitat away from the over-watched GLE pit and the lack of proper tern migration have limited my SFYL additions so far this month to three - Turtle Dove, Gropper (that was a struggle too) and Hobby. A fair way below expectations but the big one is more likely as the end of the month approaches…glass half full and all that… 
make mine a Wherry !

Stewartby Lake - any morning in late April or May you like - look no terns, no little gulls, no birds in fact
