Terns and swallows skim the lake.

It’s a warm but rather dull day, Damselflies are sluggish but not the birds.

The lakes at Rushden are formed from old gravel workings the lake with the board walk had international water skiing championships in the past. Today it is a new shopping and leisure area with wildlife and nature trails , it is encouraging people to find out more about the wildlife around them.

On the lake is a raft area which has been especially put there for breeding common terns , there is a colony of them here.

At the lake today the terns were swooping and giving acrobatic displays while feeding, not to be outdone swallows were diving down and skimming the surface . All of this just metres away from wagamamas on the boardwalk .
