Ryton Willows

We were looking for a walk away from the cool breeze so decided on Ryton Willows and specifically the walk upstream. With the tide at its lowest the river looked as though there was a drought.

The old wreck was high and dry (no not me)

There were lots of trees and bushes in flower

Over on the north bank opposite Clara Vale there was a lot of Sand Martin activity .

We spotted a large bow wave in the water from something just below the surface but were unable to see it what it was.

A pair of Bullfinch fed on the seeded flowers. The male was ringed and I'm guessing from nearby Clara Vale ringing session

Hello, do you have a picture of twiggy hut, Ive just recommended it to somebody who has a lack of garden birds. In fact I think you should do a twiggy hut feature. L
