Day 3 of the Hadrian's wall walk

Well, didn't get much walking done today. We were still a little tired in the morning, so Jessamy worked on homework until noon while I cleaned and did a little knitting.

Our excursion into the outside world started with buying buttons at John Lewis, then a necklace and headband at Accessorize (I think the last time I bought a necklace for myself was about five years ago!).

Then we backtracked a little from where we left the Coast to Coast walk yesterday, so that we could buy warm donuts from the Sunday Market.

We continued a little on the trail and walked along the river Quay (pronounced Key).

Do you know what this bird is? We don't.

Our feet were already getting tired again by this point, so then it was back home again. So really, only about one mile of the trail done today, but no regrets.

    Your bird could be an oystercatcher. They have long, curved beaks. But I can't see it well enough to tell.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion. Looked up Oystercatcher on Google images and it looks like they are a different color. This bird has a different beak too.It was a good guess though.
