a temperature of 10°C on our arrival. Canadas,Greylags,Mallards,Coots,BH Gulls,LBB Gulls,
Rooks & Jackdaws made up the bulk of the birds seen.Both Mallards & Coots had chicks &
the pair of Mute Swans were still present, in tee field next to the Tarn were a couple of Stock 
Doves a first for us at this location.Others included Oystercatcher,Lapwing,Curlew & Meadow
