A plethora of GARGANEYS of late

A good week for GARGANEYS in the county............and BLACK TERNS

First off, a drake of unknown origin was again at Blunham Lake and then two drakes spent Sunday on Peacocks Lake, Broom. The latter site also attracted up to 7 post-breeding BLACK TERNS - see pix below
