Bits and Pieces From Last Week

A gorgeous young Reed Bunting at East Chevington, there was at least 2 of them.

A year first was the young Yellow Wagtail I saw at Cresswell and a couple of hours later I spotted 3 Adults.  The young one was quite approachable but no doubt it will soon learn.

A couple of young Swallows were observed sitting on a fence and being fed by their parents but sometimes they would take of vertically and bump chest to chest with one of the adults but it happened so fast you couldn't actually see what happened.  After watching this several times and discussing it we were of the opinion that they were being fed in the air.  A lucky pic shows the young one appearing to take food from the adult.  Anyone know any different

Went on the boat trip up the Tyne to Ryton and passed this boat with a bunch of "Sea Cadets" !!!!!!!!! who looked as though they were having a good time.

Finally, can I recommend everyone to read Tim's blog about the desecration of Wild Flowers in the Whitley Bay area.  I have sent a comment to North Tyneside Council asking them "why oh why"when other councils are actually planting them.  You can use the form at https://www.northtyneside.gov.uk/online-forms.shtml?p_QID=341&p_subjectCategory=138
