Getting some fresh air with the birds

On one of my regular trips to Asda I bought some new wellies and then had a real need to wear them out so we decided to take a trip to Saltholme. Saltholme is a wildlife reserve and discovery park run by the RSPB which sits amongst a vast back drop of industry, which apparently attracts the birds - they love the lights. Although Saltholme is a great place to catch sight of  many regular and rare birds it is also a great place for families and a lovely walk out. Here are a few snaps from the visit we made recently...

Right in the heart of Teesside's Industry - near the Transporter Bridge!

Although we didn't really see any birds, although were we looking really? It was a really nice place to just walk around and get some fresh air. Its such a friendly place that is definitely worth a visit whether or not you are a twitcher!

Has anyone been before? What did you think?

    I can't remember the last time I went for a walk in the countryside or saw sheep! Makes me definitely want to go for a walk somewhere :)
