Redcar Tarn

Friday 6th January p.m.
 Our first visit of the year to Redcar Tarn, high above Keighley, where there was a
strong wind blowing making it feel colder than the temperature of 7°C, we also got
the sun occasionally on this dull afternoon. There were good numbers of Mallards,
Gulls and Coots with Tufted Ducks, Canadas and Moorhens. There were two female
Goosanders and the smaller Lapwing flock was in a nearby field with Starlings.
