Redcar Tarn

Sunday 25th March a.m.
The clocks went forward an hour this morning so I had a later start up at Redcar Tarn where the sun was out and it was feeling mild with a temperature of  4°C.The water was full of BH Gulls with more in the surrounding fields, with them were Herring,LBB and a Common Gull.There was a good count of fifteen Tufteds and a male Goosander was a pleasant surprise, also 5 Greylags and 10 Canadas. A couple of Pied Wagtails showed up, there were several Rooks, one was collecting nesting material.
Overhead a pair of Oystercatchers flew in to the field over the road where there were Lapwings holding territory and a pair of distant Redshanks were by one of the small pools of water.
