14th August 2022 Wylam – Jumping Fish & Hay Harvest

Another lovely sunny day for visiting Wylam.

The river was very busy with fish leaping from the water, The sun must have brought out all the flies for them to gorge on.

The pond is very, very low after the drought this year. Was lovely to see that one of the cygnets has survived though, although there is not much water left for it.

The hay fields have been mown for the first time since we have been coming here. I know that stock have been depleted due to the hot weather, so this lot should top it up.

Further along the Tyne another pair of swans had been more successful, gliding along with seven large cygnets in tow.
