A family of herons visited the smaller pond in Victoria Park this evening. To far out for a phone really. A few live photos knocked together with @snapthread and the quality removed with Handbreak.
Quite a lot of rain recently, but we had a dry hour or so, some sun a a fairly strong breeze.
A few blue damselflies and smallish red dragonflies along the path. Sheltered by the bracken which is starting to droop, lots of flowers go to seed. Scabious coming up strongly.
A few peacock butterflies on the knapweed, a small copper on the path, the odd painted lady and white but fewer than recently.
I love seeing wood pigeons flighting in the wind. The Black Linn was full of rain water.

Another wander round these hills, notes, photos and map:
We took a walk from Portencross to Hunterston yesterday. A butterfly filled walk. Photos, map and some notes:
Wisdom of the crowds? My favourite so far “Is Brexit karma”.
We had a walk round Loch Ardinning reserve this morning.
Turned out warm, still and clear despite the forecast.
Grass drying from the rain, sparkling.
Fair number of butterflies around, Small Tortoiseshells, Ringlets, some Whites and a lot of Painted Ladies. One or two others I didn’t ID, including a duller red/brown one.
Plenty of blue damselflies and some small red dragonflies.

NB, for Scottish educators, this is not true for Glow Blogs at the moment. I suspect due to our version of Jetpack?
