2nd May 2021 Wylam – Happy Birthday to Me!

View all photography for this entry

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.
