Redcar Tarn

Saturday 28th September a.m.
 It was still gloomy when we arrived at Redcar Tarn with a temperature of 12°C , things
began to improve during our visit with some sun getting through late morning.Most of the
usual suspect were around but at least there was something to look at after our earlier
much quieter visits.Lapwings again posed at the edge of the Tarn & a Pied Wagtail did the
same on a nearby wall, there was still a Wigeon present. On the island was the Grey Heron
and a female Goosander & we had a fly over of Greylags.As the sun broke through the
Goosander came onto the water looking for food and unusually it came quite close to us giving
chance of some good snaps.Looking at them you can see why the Goosander is from the Sawbill
family with its serrated bill.
