Following the initial sighting of Whiskered Terns on the Hoskinstown Plain they appeared to be starting to breed there on 9 December. Birds were seen carrying vegetation and landing in the reeds in the middle of a Marsh.
Garry and I visited the marsh on the 10th of December and counted at least 40 birds and at least 10 pairs sitting on or near nests.
The pasture around the marsh is, to say the least luxuriant, as shown by the way Herefords only just poke out.
Cleopatra, others get the Asp!
