The first picture of is a Pochard x Tufted hybrid photographed on 4/4/2009 at Redcar Tarn (more pictures in archived posting). The following three pictures were taken this morning also at Redcar Tarn. Returning bird? (Note that whilst today's bird looks much darker the pictures were taken in less favourable light hence the apparent different colouration).

Good numbers of very photogenic Tree Sparrows around the car park and visitor centre.
Very few Razorbills present on the cliffs at the beginning of the week but numbers had increased substantially by Thursday.
Gannets are back in huge numbers and were very active proclaiming territory and restoring old nest sites.
Couldn't omit the classic Puffin pose - just lacking the sandeels! Very few on the cliffs Monday but had started to return by Thursday.
