Farmoor Trip Report in Haiku Format

Farmoor: water - without wings
concrete emptiness
summer heat hangs heavy

Note: I originally put something down yesterday but have been working away at it as I wasn't very happy with it. I've also been learning more about the Haiku format: apparently in traditional haiku there should be a kigo which is a season word as well as a kire a punctuating cut. This is my first real attempt at birding haiku but it's an art form that I might consider further.

For those who prefer a more traditional trip report:

I went to Farmoor to look for the black terns but they'd gone and there was nothing else there apart from an oystercatcher and a few nesting black-headed gulls. Oh, and it was hot.
