Consider the following cryptic clues ~ all answers begin with the letter "B"

1. Place associated with "The Wash"? (4)
2. Beer - not mild to the North (7)
3. Biblical character has female graduate chasing No.1 (9)
4. We are embraced by brother often blamed for droop! (6)
5. Vanessa is a painted lady, perhaps (9)
6. Prefers to grow by the coast, by all accounts (5,4)

One answer is a bird, one an occupation, one a creature, another a person's name, another a plant and the final one is a city (in some order).
