As I have done for the past few weeks, I set of after work and cycled to Broom (10 miles from my house). This was to help Mark Thomas of the RSPB with his anual Tern & Gull ringing at Broom Gravel Pits (this is where he does a lot of his ringing and bird watching in Bedfordshire).
Above: We stayed behind after the Terns and Gulls to catch the Sand Martin roost (completely unsucessfully!). Whilst waiting for them to roost, I took some photographs of the setting sun. Not bad!
Above: If anybody should see this Common Tern again (BTO ring above dark blue ring on right leg and white ring above black ring on left leg), I ringed it! Please inform BTO!!!!
