Redcar Tarn

Saturday 10th september a.m.
Today started dull and overcast with drizzle falling but mild with a temperature
of 16°C.We saw the usual Canadas,Mallards,Coots and Moorhen, with a couple
of Rooks on fence posts, and also common geese plus a pair of interesting hydrid
Ducks.We also spotted three Muscovy Ducks which are not that common, they
probably fall into the feral escapee catagory.  There was also a large flock of
Lapwings overhead which landed in a nearby field.
