A second trip in a week to Carr Vale and a second Derbyshire tick! A flurry of missed messages again just as last week but this time the bird stayed on so we rushed off up to the reserve. A walk to the mound (I call it Fort Carr Vale due to its structure LOL) and joining a small crowd I soon saw the Caspian Tern flying round…
It had a few dives then caught what looked like a Perch and swallowed it in flight.
It then went back down onto the furthest pond and roosted up.
A Grey Heron was pottering around on top of the Sand Martin bank.
