Lots of cuckoos calling this morning, caught glimpse of a few. Lots of other birdsong. Warm, sunny the best of the day and still didn’t meet a soul. Sweet Woodruff and bluebells under the trees. It clouded over a bit, but we saw a couple of Small Heath butterflies. A jay.
Kilpatrick – Loch Humphrey: A bright sunny day, little breeze & hardly a cloud.
Hawthorn in full flower. A woodpecker flitting.
Cuckoos calling & couple seen in the distance. Plenty of butterflies.
Trees in leaf, just the ash lagging. Bracken & ferns unfurling.
We has a nice gentle stroll from Dawsholm up the River Kelvin to the vet school and Maryhill Road.
Lovely sunny day, it really feels like summer now. Plenty of butterflies out, orange tips and whites.
Bluebells in the woods along with garlic mustard and wild garlic. Everything green and lush. A few trout rising on the river. Watched a goosander fishing, and saw a heron sunning itself.
A bit of outdoor learning in the woods near school today. Looking at trees. Pupil identified birch correctly, told me this was due to birch in Minecraft having same pattern on trunk.
Second vaccine this evening.
Back To Glen Douglas. On a hill for the first time since last summer. Somewhat puffed: Notes and map:
Pretty amazing project, I’ve only dipped my toe in. almost 30 year’s ago I watched Toto the Hero at the movies. It had a great theme song. Over the years I forgot the film’s name about 10 years decided to find the song. Much googling (I was looking for boom) and I eventually found it on Youtube. Today I found it again but sung in English.
I am sure there are a lot more educational used for this amazing collection of digital music.

The dabchicks we have been watching in the park have abandoned their nest. My wife watched coots tear bits of the nest while the dabchicks splash-surfaced to try and scare them. A few hours later they had left. Still swimming around the pond, we hope they try another site.
I am often searching my blog for the time I notice some natural event, the first snowdrop, cuckoo or the like. This requires looking through a few posts. I though I could make something that woud search and sort by day and month, not year. This is it.
