31 October 2013 - Ashington Community Woodland, Northumberland.

This morning we went for a walk in Ashington Community Woodland. The forecast was for fine weather but it was wrong and showers arrived. In between showers a full rainbow was visible, as seen in the first photo below of the railway at Hirst Lane Crossing.

The next two photos are views taken along the woodland footpath followed by a view of the small lake at Haydon Letch where a Coot was feeding around the reeds. The last photo is a view along the path alongside Haydon Letch.

08 October 2013 - QEII Country Park, Ashington, Northumberland.

This afternoon we visited QEII Country Park and Lake at Ashington in Northumberland. There were more geese and swans than we've ever seen there and the north shore was crowded, as seen in the first three photos below.

The fourth photo is a view of some swans that were marching along in-line looking for a feed. The last photo is another view of the swans, one of which was having a peck at another one.

07 October 2013 - Cramlington, Northumberland.

This morning we visited Northumberlandia at Cramlington, the human landform sculpture set in a community park next to a giant opencast mine.

We walked to the highest point to take some photos of the surrounding countryside, using a camera with a long lens. It wasn't the best weather for this type of photography, but we managed a few photos.

The first photo below is a view dominated by two nearby wind turbines close to Plessey Woods. The second photo is a view towards Ashington and beyond to more wind turbines. The third photo is a view past Ashington (College on left) to Lynemouth and the Power Station that served the former Alcan Works.
