Yeadon Tarn

Sunday 26th April a.m.
We arrived at Yeadon Tarn in bright sunshine with a temperature of 4.5°C & began walking round the water.The usual suspects were on the water Mallards,Coots,Tufted Duck,Mute Swan,Coot, Moorhen & Great Crested Grebe.We saw a few Willow Warblers singing in the surrounding trees & it was good to see a male Black Cap & also a female nearby.A couple of Reed Buntings were also moving around, but the highlight came when we spotted a Common Tern circle then land on the wooded break water.It called from time to time & we saw a second bird circle & come in before they flew off again.Sand Martins & Swallows were also flying above the water making for another good morning.

  1. Thanks John, Yeadon Tarn has been a reliable spot for us to get Terns over the last four years.
