Redcar Tarn

Monday 11th April p.m.
 Some time free this afternoon so we went up to Redcar Tarn where there was some hazy sunshine with a strong blustery wind taking the edge off the 13°C temperature.There are still some Gulls here with a fair number of BH Gulls,10 LBB Gulls & a couple each of Herring & Common.The usual Canadas,Mallards,Coots & Tufted Ducks were on the water with the bonus of an Oystercatcher near the island.A Goldfinch posed well for some snaps in the trees around the Tarn as did a singing male Chaffinch.Lapwings,Jackdaw & Rook were also present.

On our return home we filled the bird feeders up in the garden and a couple of minutes later were rewarded with Goldfinch & Siskin, we were able to get close enough for some good snaps of one of the male Siskin.
