River Blyth A walk from Tinker’s wood close to Walberswick along the shore of the River Blyth to Blythburgh. Normally at this time of year I would have expected to find some excellent fungi which I hope to draw soon but with the fine weather which continues there is none. But the river looks superb […]
Tinkers Marsh Walking from Southwold over the bridge and up river on the Walberswick side. Great wildlife today with Barnacle Geese, Wigeon, Common Sandpipers, Bearded Reedlings, Meadow Pipits, Buzzard, Redshank, Heron and Egret. This view is from the bank of Tinkers marsh looking up towards Wolsey’s Creek, on the left a Cormorant with wings outstretched.
Walberswick beach huts are very distinctive from those across the river at Southwold which are brightly coloured. These beach huts are all black and sit a little behind the dunes to keep them tucked out of sight.
Sitting down on the Blackshore in Southwold harbour on a chilly May day looking across the River Blyth towards Walberswick Church.
This boat I has been the subject of my paintings before, nowadays it has seen better days as it rots in the sand at the edge of the Blyth. I expect I will revisit it again in the future too. http://www.kate-batchelor.co.uk/boats2/ image number 8
