Yeadon Tarn

Sunday 24th April a.m.
By the time we got to Yeadon Tarn there were some spells of sunshine and the temperature was up a bit to 5°C.The Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers were in full voice and Reed Buntings were singing too.Over the water the Swallows were joined by House Martins,our first of the year and we also got our first Swift.On the water the usual mix, one of the Mute Swans had a yellow tag 150 there were three different Coot nests with birds on.We saw a Kestrel and the bonus of a distant Red Kite over the airport,we also saw two broods of Mallard chicks again the first young ones this year.
