I went up to North cave this morning for the reported black tern.
Got there for around 7 and it was pretty miserable-with nothing else about I was pretty content to watch the black tern and slowly but surely the rain stopped and light got better.
There were a few waders about including ruff, green sandpiper, greenshank, common sandpiper, dunlin, golden plover and hundreds of lapwing.
It gave quite a spectacular show especially when it came close mainly picking small insect off the surface but also taking the odd fish.
