The Weir

Strange how the panoramic view distorts the shape of the weir, and yet this is what the camera sees from a single  wide viewpoint. A kind of fishbowl effect.  This is looking down the River Tweed. There were several boats on the river, and a total lack of herons – they were obviously keeping a low profile.

April Fishing on River Tweed

apriln5

Two men and a dog, a saltire in the background, one fine day in the Scottish Borders (only technically, the fishermen are either in no-man’s land, or in Northumberland, being on the far side of the river). I walk on up the road to look for herons and cherry blossom.

Fishing Boat

The boats moored all along the edge of River Tweed have been laid up for the winter, but now they are back on the water, swinging to and fro on their end of their moorings.  This is the first day I have seen fishing back on the river.  In the distance are loud bangs, I don’t know whether from guns or bird scarers.  There are empty cartridge cases littering the pathway, and fishermen in boats in the distance, and someone fishing in waders near the bank.  I have heard salmon jumping, but all the birds have vainished, I don’t see a single bird on the river through my walk. Not even a heron.
