14th May 2021 - Longham Lakes, Dorset
Managed to pop down to Longham Lakes in Dorset in the afternoon to try for the Whiskered Tern which has been present for around a week. After parking the car (not easy around there) and finding the footpath to the lakes, I located the bird within 30 seconds of arrival. It was sat on a yellow buoy near the Northern end giving nice views. It remained on the buoy for the next 15 minutes before going for a fly around and at times getting quite close. The bird always returned to the yellow buoys! A particularly easy twitch and a bird I was very happy to catch up with after dipping the Dungeness bird in May 2019.
