Redcar Tarn

Thursday March 28th p.m.
 A visit to Redcar Tarn above Keighley this afternoon where the sun briefly made an
appearance but still cold at 2°C.Good numbers of BH & Common Gulls with the
Mallards,Coots & Canadas. A small flock of Lapwings flew over and there were a
couple of Goldfinch. A few other common species along with the hybrid Ducks and
Geese.The water was 70% frozen over and snow drifts blocked the path down one
side of the Tarn but the birds seemed to be coping well with the poor conditions.
