Maybe you remember that I was at Saltholme nature reserve last weekend with some of my Polish family? The RSPB website describes Saltholme as “big skies, fantastic wildlife and a friendly welcome in the heart of Teesside”. We certainly had a good time with our Mad Hatter’s tea party.
The landscape is highly industrial with chemical works and Power Station on its doorstep, but the wetlands are a prime site for migrating birds. At low tide you can also enjoy seals basking on the riverbanks of the estuary. The state of the art visitor centre and wildlife reserve has breathed new life into a less than desirable area.
I was having so much fun with the family, I missed week 33 of Dawn’s challenge, but I’m back to play this week. Check out the other entries at Lingering Visions. I bet you’ve seen some windows you’d like to share?
