A dull but mild start to the day with a temperature of 14.5°C on our arrival at Redcar Tarn.Here
the usual Mallards,Canadas,Coots,Moorhen & LBB Gulls were all present.Only a couple of BH Gulls
though but there was a Mute Swan,several Curlews were seen moving around the surrounding fields.
There was a group of 12 Lapwings flying in to a nearby field & Skylarks were constantly singing through
out our visit.Swallows were over the surrounding fields,Swifts above the trees & House & Sand Martins were hawking over the water.A good sighting for this location was a Kestrel hovering over an adjacent
field don't see many of these at the Tarn.The Pied Wagtails turned up towards the end of our visit,also
still present four male Tufted Ducks & two Muscovy.Rooks & Jackdaws also made their usual appearance.
