Had read there had been a Goldeneye seen on Yeadon Tarn, I have seen one up at Eccup but it was along way of and the photo is not great. So on Sunday (29/12/13) ,I set of to have a look and the sun was shining.
Did manage to see..
|Black- headed Gull|
But no Goldeneye.
Wednesday January 1st
Even though it was cold wet and dark there was plenty of people walking round the Tarn and family's feeding the ducks.
The only bit of colour came from the Canoe lined up..
The boat shed was open and they were sailing their boats on the water ( from in side).
Still no Goldeneye but I did see these birds to day...
There was to resting ( I think) Great Crested Grebes
And last of all this little duck, I did see it the other day. It dose have the look of a female Mandarin, the size,and face but the colour is a little wrong. We do get Mandarin on the Tarn every year but they still have not managed to breed here.
