Redshank at Redcar Tarn

Friday April 20th p.m.
 A cloudy afternoon with the odd heavy shower and some sunny intervals, the temperature was
just 5.5°C as we pulled up at Redcar Tarn. Things could't have got off to a better start as two
Redshanks landed just in front of the car giving us a great view of them. We stayed in the car so
as not to frighten them off, but they didn't stop long before going into a nearby field. We also saw
our first Swallows of the year flying about, there were the usual Gulls and Ducks and as we walked
round the Tarn we saw the Redshanks in the next field and were able to get some snaps.

  1. Nice Redshank shots, not an easy bird to get close to.
