Alnwick and Berwick

With a nice sunny morning before heading off to Alnwick Castle had a nice walk round to have a closer looking at Warkworth Castle and the village of Warkworth in the early morning sunshine a worthwhile little detour.

Then headed to Alnwick Castle where we had a nice walk around the Garden where the Cascade where give a nice display before having a walk around the garden the hightlight beeing the tulips meadow with thousands of them. The after a few minute with a a lovely singing Blackbird walked around the garden looking at some of the intrestings flowers before a quick wander around the castle ground.

Then headed up to Berwick before a little stop in Bamburgh to have a look at the castle. In Berwick had a nice wander walk round first along the River Tweed having a look at a few of the bridge crossing the river then around the town walls as this town was built around its city defence as it swapped ownership between England and Scotland a numbers of times. Then after dinner had a walk around Lindisfarne with the tide still out seeing the Priory and the castle and quite a few birds around the island with good numbers of Ringed Plover along with Whimbrel, Linnets, Gold Finches and Shelduck just around the main village.
