Redcar Tarn

Sunday 27th July a.m.
 A cooler start to the day but still plenty sunshine with a temperature of 15°C at Redcar Tarn.
The numbers of BH Gulls is still increasing & around 35 LBB Gulls a record for us at the Tarn,
also a couple of Common Gulls.Mallard numbers are high but only a couple of Tufteds,the Canada
numbers were increased when an additional 20 flew in.Lapwings were in the surrounding fields,a couple were also on the island & some came to the edge of the Tarn for a snap.Pied Wags were seen & a walk
up the road to where there was a muck heap a few Juveniles were seen along with a couple of Linnets &
a couple of Oystercatchers.Also on the island was a Moorhen with a young chick & Coots were seen
too, good numbers of Jackdaws & Rooks some looking like Juveniles in the sunshine.With Swallows,
House MartinsSwifts also present we had an enjoyable visit.
