Yeadon Tarn

Sunday 18th December a.m.
After our visit to Lister Park we resumed our journey over to Yeadon Tarn
where it was still cold with parts of the Tarn frozen over. The sun was low in
the now blue skies the temperature still at 1°C. There were plenty Mallards
and BH Gulls along with Tufted Ducks. As we walked round there were still
four Mute Swans, which were here on our last visit, and lower numbers of
Canadas. With the low sun behind us we got good views of Pochard with
the Coots we even spotted a couple of Common Gulls amongst the BH Gulls,
not something we have seen much this year. As we walked round we saw the
usual Moorhens and a group of Long-tailed Tits moved through briefly landing
in a tree just in front of us. As we got back to the car we spotted a Bullfinch
high in a tree and as we took some snaps some Goldfinch through high in the
