The morning started well when my dad was taking the dog for a walk at first light, he saw a
Dipper in the village.This was where the road goes over the beck near the Fleece Pub,the bird
was in the water & when my dad looked over it moved to some stones at the side of the bank
giving a good view only meters away.
As we set off to Yeadon Tarn we saw a Kestrel on top of a telegraph pole at the edge of the
village.On arrival at Yeadon Tarn the sun was shining with a temperature of 8.5°C,it was still low
&made looking across the water difficult.Canadas,Mallards,Moorhen,Coots,Mute Swan,Tufted
Duck & a G.C.Grebe were all present. Just before we left a Cormorant flew in & landed on the water.
On our way home as we went across Hawksworth Moor we saw a Red Kite, we found a place to
park to try & get some record snaps & a Kestrel appeared in the field at the side of us.
