Redcar Tarn

Saturday 23rd July a.m.
  This morning started off bright and sunny with a temperature of 10°C as we made
our way up to Redcar Tarn. Here we saw the usual birds with the addition of three
Lapwing on the island and a group of 17 flying over the Tarn. It was good to get out
again and see some birds after the heavy rain last weekend.
