Redcar Tarn

Sunday 13th October p.m.
 A poor morning forecast so we had a lie in for a change, rain & cloud stayed around until
late afternoon.With some brightening skies we decided to pay a quick visit to Redcar Tarn,
here the temperature was 10°C, the brighter weather soon turned to light rain so we just had
time for a quick walk around.
 Still good numbers of Mallards & BH Gulls & the 13 Goosanders were still present.The Grey
Heron was again on the island, & the other was on a distant wall with a mixture of Lapwings,BH
Gulls & Starlings in the field at the back of the Tarn. There was a couple of LBB Gulls & 3
Common Gulls, the old resident domesticated Greylag was joined by another Greylag & several
Canadas. The usual assortment of Hybrid Ducks were present with a group of white Geese which
could be possibly described as Hybrid,Common,Farmyard or Feral Geese take your pick.
