We had coffee at Kirkharle yesterday and was interested to note that the new lake which they have created is quite a significant size. It will be interesting to see what bird life it attracts over the coming months. Apparently the area should be open to public around May.
On the way back we spent five minutes at Bolam Lake watching many Blue and Great Tit feeding on the wall. They all seem very flighty and the slightest alarm from the Blackbird and they were out of sight, but it did not take long for them to reappear.
