Travel theme: Autumn

Prompted by this article in our local newspaper (Leep of Faith) and a recent post by BreathofGreenAir, I went in search of autumnal salmon jumping the weir beneath Hexham Bridge. They are an impressive if fleeting site and very difficult to capture on film – a few brown bears would have made things easier but these are few and far between in deepest Northumberland.  In the end I gave up and settled for this darn duck, fresh from paddling in the Tyne – oranges anyone?

Tyne duck ...

Is this Duck Berry, doing his infamous duck walk? (if you are impatient, jump to 1 minute 19 seconds).
