A Week in Spring

With holidays taken to fill in the period between the extra long bank holidays, I’ve had an extra period of time off and with the weather also being settled, I’ve managed to get out quiet a bit and enjoy spring.  This is a selection of the photographs taken around the Tyneside area.

A visit to the woods and the new undergrowth of ferns is everywhere.  Another month from now and these will be thick,  high barrier hiding much of the local wildlife such as Roe Deer.  The biting insects are also starting to make their appearance though not as prolific yet.
