This morning was a washout so I ventured up to Redcar Tarn this afternoon when the sun was out with a temperature of 15°C.The first bird of note was a Juvenile Lesser Black-backed Gull with a Green leg ring number N:D81 which had been seen earlier in the week, on the BOG site is reported as being ringed this summer in Bowland, Lancashire.
There was also a much bigger Juvenile close by which by its size I put down to being a Greater Black-backed Gull.There were also a good many other Juvenile Gulls and c50 BH Gulls, Lapwings numberd 25 along with a similar number Starlings.There was a flock of c50 Linnets and on the water there were five Goosanders along with the Tufteds and Canadas. I also saw seven Pied Wagtails, Rooks, Jackdaws and a Grey Heron.
