Stewartby Lake Saturday Morning

A very pleasant walk around the lake in the early morning sun. Migrants were in evidence with juvenile Willow Warblers, Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs and Common Whitethroats all present and Swallows and martins feeding over the lake.

The BLACK TERN and 3 Common Terns at the gull watch end. A smart adult Peregrine on the second chimney from the left about 1/3rd of the way up (Pete Smith)
