midnight tick for the garden list

Its twelve thirty and I have just been out having a look at the stars as it’s a nice night. While I was waiting for my eyes to acclimatise there was a sudden start up of alarm calling from the Breckan pools below the house. Now this was mostly oystercatchers and blackheaded gulls making the usual racket but standing out from this distinctly were the calls of at least one common tern. It’s a long while since I heard any terns calling and this is the first of the year for me and better still since it gets on the garden list as a first spot. Heard birds are all right in my book as the old garden list is quite er wide ranging…...sweet tick!!
