Just after spotting the Black Tern I distantly heard a buzzy song that sounded like a CCSP from down the dike. It sang several times and then went quiet for the next half hour. Then started singing again and a got a few good glimpses of it and saw it in flight quite a few times, recorded song, got a few pictures and some more views - huge surprise!
