Walked under the railway bridge to the meeting of the Derwent and Tyne.
All of the regulars were there, Redshank, Blackheaded Gull, Oystercatcher, Mute Swan, Cormorant, Curlew together with four Common Sandpiper. Three of them flew down the Derwent and straight across the Tyne to the opposite bank. One lingered on the mud bank then turned tail and back up the Derwent. Cannot blame it really.
We are making a right mess of this world!
