This morning I got a text from Midlands Birder saying that Martin Yapp(who has a blog called Regional Tick) had spotted an Artic tern at sheepwash urban park, so I thought I would check it out, of course after the usual waiting for half an hour on a bus that needed to go a mile, terrible!!!
When i got there i checked to see where it was last spotted, on the rocky islands flying around that area, and it was perched on a rock near the waters edge. I think because it was a juvinille it didnt seem to mind me, even when I was perched on a rock 20-30 meters away, only flying when a Lesser Black Back Gull took a peck at it, and shortly landing again on the rocks.
Good Luck Out There, GB.
