Yes, today is my birthday. As we still cannot meet others indoors, and the forecast wasn’t great, we decided to go off to Wylam. I know, not again, but it’s a lovely place for a walk and the wildlife is stunning here.
The biggest surprise was seeing a grey seal next to the bridge, obviously looking for a salmon snack. Take a look on a map and see how far inland Wylam is! Quite a trip for a seal, and it must have hauled itself over the rapids.
A pair of swans were being aggressive to us on the pond so they may have a nest nearby. We kept our distance. A grey heron took of from the other side of the pond and soared off over the trees.
