Yeadon Tarn

Sunday 23rd March a.m.
 Another sunny start with a temperature of 6°C on our arrival at Yeadon Tarn this
morning.We were greeted with a singing Chiffchaff as we got out of the car, our first
of the year.The water held Canadas,Mute Swans,Greylag,Tufted duck,Mallards,Coots,
Moorhen & Great Crested Grebe.We saw a female Duck that we thought was a Gadwall
but it had a red eye so we put it down as a hybrid.A Reed Bunting posed in a nearby tree,
then we saw a bigger bird appear, a Red Kite, we fumbled with the cameras but could only
get a poor record shot as it moved away in the distance.
