Redcar Tarn

Saturday 30th June a.m.
The heatwave continues and I arrived at Redcar Tarn in the sunshine with a start temperature of 14°C.
There were 46 LBB Gulls which I think is a record for me here there were also c50 BH Gulls with a couple of juveniles in the mix.A Coot had two young chicks and a Mallard had four chicks in tow there were only two Tufteds seen, above the water were two Swifts and two House Martins.In the surrounding fields a Curlew was seen and their were Rooks and Jackdaws, a Buzzard flew over mobbed by two Rooks.A Chaffinch was singing and was close enough for a picture, not a bad morning as it goes.
