Redcar Tarn

Monday 7th October p.m.
 A cloudy morning but things brightened up this afternoon for a trip up to Redcar Tarn,
where the temperature was up to 16.5°C in the sunny spells.Present were growing numbers of
Gulls & Mallards with a record count of 13 Goosanders. There were two Grey Herons one was
on the island the other near the footpath on an old Coots nest.This bird moved around a bit at one
point being mobbed by BH Gulls as it flew away with a fish.
