Goldfinch at Bombay Hook.

My original plan was to try Blackwater this morning, but the car wanted Bombay Hook, so off I went.

It turned out to be the wrong choice. Not terribly bad, but not as good as recently. Apparently low water keeps the bird population down, so we need some rain.

I did manage to find a few decent birds, especially Terns and Goldfinches. I’ll keep an eye on the weather and try again when we’ve had some rain.

This juvenile was being harassed by Two Blackbirds, who eventually drove him from the area.

It’s difficult to capture these Forster’s Terns as they catch a fish.
