An afternoon stroll

Posted on July 10, 2020 at 5:45 AM

Yesterday I went for a gentle stroll through Wallsend Rising Sun CP.  Starting at the Visitor Centre car park I went through to the meadow to the North of the site.  This is developing into a lovely area.

The Meadow Cranesbill is a beautiful subtle shade and moves gently in the breeze...


It is complemented by the Field Scabious...


There are oceans of White Clover, punctuated by statuesque umbellifers...




The most common butterfly is the Ringlet...



As I moved further one, towards Meadow Ponds, I heard the rather feeble song of the Reed Bunting.  He was trying his best...



As I continued, I noticed some movement in a hawthorn bush.  I waited patiently and got a peek at this little chap..



And more patience rewarded me a much better view of the Whitethroat...



I made my way towards Swallow Pond and heard Chiffchaff calling loudly just above my head...



At the pond there were distant Common Terns swooping...



As I made my way back to the car a thoughtful rabbit caught my attention...



And at the car park some bright Rosebay Willowherb gave a splash of colour...



So - all in all - a pleasant stroll and, as ever, plenty to see (if you look!)
