Redcar Tarn

Tuesday 20th December p.m.
 A dull chilly day at Redcar Tarn with a temperature of 3°C but dry and plenty of
birds to see. The Lapwing flock was present with some Golden Plover and a few
BH Gulls mixed in. On theTarn were the usual Mallards a large number of BH Gulls
and a few Common and LBB,Canadas and tufted Ducks. Walking round a Fieldfare
landed in a nearby tree which was a first good sighting of this bird for us, it was joined
by another as they moved further away.A Robin also popped up along with several
Chaffinch which flew away. One note of caution to our fellow birders,a bird landed on
a wall some distance away which got our pulses racing but looking through the bins we
decided it was a crow with a white chest,beware!
