Redcar Tarn

      Mega distant shot of 9 Snipe at far end
           of field on Tarn Lane.

                                  16 juv LBBs present
   1 of 7 Tufted looking fresh in.
                                                   LBB
                                                      LBB
  juv Mediterranean gull flying round


                                       and on the water
                                     Tufteds sticking to the middle

A foggy start up on the tops and heavy drizzle made me head for Redcar Tarn which had clear visibility but some heavy rain showers but at least it kept the public at bay apart from the dedicated dog walkers and 3 anglers.
7 Tufted duck were in the centre of the water looking like fresh in movers resting up ,whilst a good count of 16 juv LBB gulls were present before dwindling down to 5. Otherwise it was just the usual BHGs, Moorhen, Coot, Mallards, Canadas etc
After about 30 minutes the juv Med gull arrived doing a few circuits of the water before dropping down onto the water but keeping near to the island.
Over the road in the dug up field there were around 150 Lapwings and 9 Snipe which unfortunately kept to the rear of the field around a small pond and out of camera range.
A flock of c30 Linnets were mobile.
