Coldstream Bridge: A Border Crossing

bridge1

This is the bridge between Scotland and England, a few yards from where I live. In the summer students sit on the weir or swim in the river, celebrating the end of their exams. Herons fly from bank to bank of the Tweed, the boundary river. Half a mile further along the river there are flocks of Canada geese, all mingled up with greylag geese and swans, and gulls and ducks. These are Borderlands.
