Redcar Tarn Keighley

Wednesday 15th June p.m.
 Today has been a day of sunshine and showers with a very heavy shower around
4.30p.m. Afterwards it bightened up so we paid a quick visit to Redcar Tarn, there
were around 100 BH Gulls on the water and in the nearby fields along with 10 LBB
Gulls. There was about 20 Mallards plus chicks,10 Coots some with chicks,a pair of
Canadas with 4 chicks,10 Tufted Ducks,2 Moorhen,2 Mute Swans. On the island we
caught sight of a Wagtail, we think it was a White. The birds have had a good
breeding season at this location with there being many chicks The tufted Ducks
however don't look to have had any chicks. In the fields away from the Tarn we
saw 2 Lapwings,2 Meadow Pipits and 6 Curlew.
