Tufted Ducks at the Tarn

Saturday 9th April a.m.
     Early this morning it was a bit chilly adout 5°C with a little mist. Tried a new
location Redcar Tarn above Keighley and was not dissappointed. There were
around 20 Tufted Ducks, about the same Mallards and a few Geese, including a
Greylag. There were also a couple of odd ball ducks. We saw 4 Coots, 6 Moorhens,
2 Black-Headed Gulls and a couple of Common Gulls flying about.
    The sun started to brighten things up and in a nearby field caught sight of two
Curlew and a couple of Lapwings a good start to the day.

  1. A good spot up there Danny which produces some good birds. A few more for your tick list and again some good photos.
