Redcar Tarn

Sunday 20th October a.m.
 Yet another cloudy start to the day, but things slowly brightened through the morning, on
our arrival at Redcar Tarn above Keighley the temperature was 11°C.There were good
numbers of BH Gulls,Mallards & Coots on the water.Canadas,Lapwings & Starlings were
feeding in the surrounding fields & the Grey Heron was on the island.It was also good to
see a Robin & a couple of Pied Wags were flitting about.

  1. Getting good with those flight shots now boys

  2. We binned a lot to get a couple of decent ones.
    We sadly binned all our pics of the Redwing at Harold Park so couldn't help M.C. with the possible Dusky Thrush.We thought there were a lot of migrant Blackbirds but a Dusky Thrush,which we have now looked up, was never in our thoughts.With the poor light at Harold Park the only way we could ID it was when the snap was brightened on the pc and Redwing was our only thought.That'll teach us to bin pics too soon!
