Golden Delight

Saturday 23rd November a.m.
A cold morning with a widespread ground frost & a temperature of -1°C on our arrival at
Redcar Tarn but it was bright & sunny.We checked out all the usual birds on the Tarn which
we will report on later because we struck Gold as there were Golden Plover mixed with the
Lapwing & Starling flocks.
 Firstly we saw only a few but as the flighty birds took to the air we could see there were around
75 of them.They kept moving around the fields surrounding the Tarn which meant we had to do
a lot of walking to keep up with them.But it was well worth the effort as we haven't seen them
locally for a couple of years.They were usually at the far side of the fields but my dads camera was
able to get some decent snaps of them(been a good buy & proved its worth today).
