I have a boat which is kept at Sawley. I only got it in late October 2008 and, at this time, Derwent Mouth (which is just north of Sawley on the River Trent) was a great place for Kingfishers (at that time there were also plenty of Fieldfares around here and a few Cormorants). Now the area seems to have been taken over by Common Terns which settle on a dead tree in the river (although we are still seeing the occasional Kingfisher).
Common Terns at Derwent Mouth
Having had a run up to Derwent Mouth, we headed back south to Trent Lock, in order to take a trip up the River Soar. There were more Common Terns at the junction of the Soar and the Trent.
