One of the first outings Sophie and I had this year, was to visit the wildfowl trust at Washington, a reasonably regular haunt as the birds there are cool to see. First though we went to see the building of the new bridge across the River Wear in Sunderland. It’s a bit of a behemoth and will link up Castletown to Pallion, or, as my hubby says, will link up one shit~hole to another shit~hole 🙂
I think they must be trying to have an iconic bridge, as Newcastle has 7 beautiful ones, and the other Sunderland bridges are pig ugly in truth. It will be cool to see it when it’s all finished, in the meantime the disruption to traffic is painful.
Anyway on with the birds at WWT!
No idea what these are but they’re pretty,
love seeing the otters
and we sat in a hide for a while and took shots of the wild birds feeding
at the lake we saw a Heron Tree
and some geese
and on the way back, some swans under a weeping willow.
A lovely day out.
