arctic terns, primroses & cuckoo flowers

101‐6293 primrose, cuckoo flower & celandine    

Retrospective post from scarce field outing. Gale force winds out at local reservoir. Seems like the wind drove lots of arctic terns up the bristol channel… and some of them spilling onto the reservoir. At times good views of this large group (over 100) tacking over the choppy water.
Taking shelter later and sketching the laneside flora.
