Black Terns on the patch

I should have found these 4 Blacks but was still putting my gear on when a text came through! -- truly magnificent birds that I had wanted to try and capture on digital for some springs --my last good slide image was in May 1990! when there were 75 on the patch one beautiful evening in early May; today it was dull and dark with some rain but looking at my images I was actually quite impressed by the spots of falling rain and the subtle contrast of the terns ;; after only 90 minutes they all called and as the weather cleared a little and headed off in a flock to the east crossing the Humber bridge approach road and disappearing -- hopefully some more will pass through tomorrow
