I am beginning to see more peacock butterflies again, this one and more at Old Kilpatrick yesterday.
School finished for the summer in the pouring rain at 1pm today. By 5 O’clock the sun and a few butterflies were out, including this Meadow Brown. By the Kelvin near the vet school.
Female Orange Tip Butterfly
Meadow Brown on Thyme, Barassie beach on Friday. A lot of butterflies in the grass between beach & golf course.
Had a short walk by Jaw Reservoir, yesterday. Quite a few butterflies about. These posed. A lot of ringlets, a few whites and a red admiral did not oblige.
A nice walk around Ardinning Wildlife reserve on Sunday morn, very quiet. Cuckoos, curlews & other singing & calling.
Images: Ardinning Loch, caterpillar, wood anemone, bluebells, dandelion & a green veined white.
Lovely sunny day. Had a walk from the Braeval carpark, out towards Calendar, saw my first butterflies of the year, peacocks, quite a few this, one quite ragged.
Bonus Coal Tit
Some more photos on flicker, celandine & primroses were out.
Kilpatrick Muir today, heather very much in bloom, few butterflies about despite the overcast weather. Peacock & Green Veined White.
Small White or Green Veined White? Seems it is
hard to tell from this angle.
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.
Hawthorn & Bluebells
