Redcar Tarn & Moors

Friday 12th Dec p.m.
 Another visit up to Redcar Tarn where it was sunny on our arrival but a cold 2°C.There were fewer birds than on our last visit but still good numbers here & now three Goosanders. After walking round the Tarn we decided to try our look even higher up on the Moors above Keighley & on our way we spotted a Kestrel & another Raptor which we couldn't ID,most likely suspect it was a Buzzard.The high moorland had a covering of snow & was very cold, the only birds we saw here were Red Grouse so we didn't stop too long.
