Yeadon Tarn

Saturday 31st August a.m.
 It was cloudy when we arrived at Yeadon Tarn with a temperature of 12.5°C, there were
some sunny intervals though. A good number of c125 Mallards were spread out around the
Tarn, BH Gulls,a couple of Common Gulls & a Grey Heron were on the barriers at the
airport end.Both Swallows & House Martins were over head with Coots,Moorhen & Mute
Swans on the water.It was good to see a pair of Moorhens with two young chicks and two
of the Mute Swan treated us to a fly past.As we headed for the car park we stopped to watch
three Willow Warblers flitting about in a stand of trees where the sun was now shinning, a
Chiffchaff also broke into song which was unexpected this late in the year.
