An adult White winged Black Tern was present for most of the day at Draycote Water viewed from farnborough bank , this was Draycote,s 8th record. White winged Black Terns breed in Hungary and Bulgaria eastwards into Asia and winter in Africa south of the Sahara. On migration a few join parties of Black Terns and are some-times displaced westwards as far as Britian.
