Part of the Rob Roy Way.
Cloudy & warm, getting brighter. Butterflies out later.
Very quiet, saw one couple on the way out, a few more coming back. Spider, nest & young.

Meall an Fhudair today walkmap
55 °F Misty
I’d spent the previous few hours walking without seeing much wildlife. The caw of a few crows and a buzzard in the mist. A couple of grouse on the braes and the odd raven, one with what looked like a lump of meat in its beak. Pigeon and tits in the trees.
Joining the metalled road from Loch Humphrey at the cattlegrid and round the next corner. A buzzard left a tree on the right of the road 10 yards in front. As I watched it glide off some goldfinches went over head. To my left two more sat chatting. My eyes were pulled by fieldfares leaving the trees. A woodpecker was silhouetted on a dead stump like a classic cartoon. It flew to the top branches and clung letting me have a good view.
I walked out to Duncolm this morning, mostly in low cloud and very poor visibility. Trees around the edges of the Braes are constantly fascinating. Flickr Set
On Sunday’s walk I stopped now and again to record some audio.
