I cannot praise the local council highly enough for thier endeviours to protect and encourage our dunes to develop, with a little human introvention. Matt, the former Countryside officer for our borough is the man to thank regards this great project. Over the winter period our dunes have enlarged big style because of the fencing erected around the area, which has acted like a barrier.
This was the scene yesterday... what path?? This is(was) the one leading from the skateboard park(behind the fair) to the pier, and I really hope that this path is never seen again.!
The pier wander- This ship still has me doing a double take each time I see it around the Tyne area., its just not the normal.
Marine park (south) produced my first Chiffchaff of the year on Saturday ( More than likely wintering) and also a couple of Goldcrests in tow. 8 Pochards on this lake is the best count in our area.
And what can you say about this beauty.. ? Wor Marsden resident is looking very smart again.( bar the noise, camera wise)
A Short-eared owl showed briefly along the coastal path in Whitburn after i landed with the dog in tow.
Just a blob on a rock..? i hope not. Sign of Otter me things along the Don. Anal jelly ( sounds a tad naughty) but it looks like the real thing.
