Redcar Tarn

Monday 22nd September p.m.
 An afternoon visit up to Redcar Tarn with some pleasant sunshine & a temperature of 14.5°C.
Good numbers of Mallards & Gulls with Coots,Canadas & Tufted Ducks also on the water.Good
to catch up with the Muscovy family, the three youngster now nearly as big as the adult.Still a
couple of Swallows hanging on, & a charm of Goldfinch landed in a nearby tree but soon moved
on.Lapwings were on the island & just as we were leaving a Kestrel hovered over a nearby field.
