Redcar Tarn

Wednesday January16th p.m.
 It was a very cold ,cloudy wintry day at Redcar Tarn this afternoon with 95% of the water
frozen over and a temperature of -3°C. The Mallards & BH Gulls were there in large
numbers braving the cold weather making this a very harsh environment for them. Others
that were still around were Canadas,Coots,Moorhen & Common Gull. Walking round the
Tarn a charm of Goldfinch appeared but didn't hang around for long & in a near by field
was a Pied Wagtail.
