Comments

Nice walk along the north side of the river - through the woods. Impressive railway viaduct - a bit hairy crossing the river on the A19. Passed two riding schools. A lot of litter around. Some nice houses on the riverside, with their own post box. Lots of pubs but we never went into any. Found a golf ball and a canoe in the trees. Fed the ducks and geese - one goose dunked a large lump in the water to soften it before swallowing it.

Wildlife: Dead cormorant, lots of ducks, swans, geese (white and Canadian), chaffinch, robins, little terns.


Evening meal

The Keelman at Newburn. Joined by Evelyn.
