Moth, South Shields

The River Don

The River Don is a tributary of the River Tyne and it meets the Tyne at the western edge of South Shields just behind St. Paul’s Church in Jarrow, during the summer months it’s banks are covered in long grasses with many wild flowers, a haven for insects and small mammals. When I was there I discovered at least five types of butterlies and moths, along with ladybirds, mice, rabbits, and a variety of wading birds on the mud flats, I’ll be going back there a little more often to see what I can find.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 300mm lens (macro), 1/250 second, f8.0, iso 200
