White Winger at Fairburn

I nipped to Fairburn Ings after work on Tuesday to see a superb summer plumaged White Winged Black Tern, it had first been seen at Swillington Ings Monday evening but then moved to Fairburn Tuesday morning and spent the rest of the day out in front of Lin Dyke Hide, a bit distant for photography but really good views, a stunning bird, there were also several Common Terns fishing here and a female Marsh Harrier hunted nearby plus a Ruddy Shelduck was on the Main Bay but it was typically very distant and playing hide and seek behind one of the Islands, there are several of these birds doing the rounds at the moment, whether their credentials are good or not is anybodies guess, nice to see anyway.

always distant

the Common Terns weren't shy

shame I just lost the wingtip

very distant Ruddy Shelduck

I think this maybe a Northern Marsh Orchid
