Another stroll

Posted on 14 July, 2020 at 8:35

On Sunday, 12th July, we had one of our infrequent trips out.  We would have preferred to go midweek but the weather was inclement.  We opted for Bolam Lake.

On arrival we were a bit dismayed by the number of cars but most of the occupants either seemed to be feeding loaves of white bread to the swans or be grouped around the ice-cream van! So the one-way walking system that is in place and our desire to walk the less popular paths meant that we were able to be fairly well isolated.

Birds were not plentiful - neither to see nor hear. But there were plenty of plants to keep Julia occupied and a thistle meadow that teemed with insect life.

Red-tailed Bumblebee (Bombus lapidarius):



Common Blue Damselfly:


A few butterflies too...

Small Skipper


...the UK's most common butterfly - the Meadow Brown...


...and a rather scruffy Red Admiral...


Flower heads and emerging plants made for interesting pictures too...




In the darkest part of the woods, by a feeder, we did see various tits and a Nuthatch.


On our way home we called in at Prestwick Carr, which, as we guessed, was very quiet - in terms of humans and wildlife!

As we left, we did spot a Kestrel - and this is a real 'record shot' just to remind us it was there...


So another pleasant walk - nothing startling but plenty to keep us interested.

I simply wanted to appreciate you yet again. I do not know the things that I would have achieved in the absence of those techniques revealed by you on this theme. It has been the frightening situation for me personally, but being able to view the very specialized way you handled it forced me to leap with delight. Now i am thankful for your support and even trust you are aware of a great job you have been doing educating the mediocre ones with the aid of a site. More than likely you haven't encountered all of us.

I wish to show appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this type of issue. Because of exploring through the world wide web and seeing suggestions which are not beneficial, I was thinking my life was well over. Being alive minus the strategies to the issues you've resolved all through your good write-up is a serious case, and ones which might have adversely damaged my entire career if I hadn't come across your website. Your primary knowledge and kindness in maneuvering the whole thing was invaluable. I don't know what I would have done if I had not encountered such a step like this. I can at this time relish my future. Thanks very much for the expert and effective help. I will not think twice to suggest your site to any individual who needs care about this problem.

I intended to compose you that tiny observation to thank you over again considering the stunning suggestions you've featured on this website. It was extremely open-handed with you to offer openly precisely what most people would have distributed for an electronic book to generate some money for their own end, most notably seeing that you might well have tried it in the event you considered necessary. The basics also acted like the easy way to know that other people online have the same dream similar to my personal own to find out lots more on the subject of this condition. I believe there are a lot more pleasant occasions up front for individuals that looked at your site.
