I’ve had an unpleasant virus for the past 6 or 7 weeks. So I’ver not been out much apart from going to work. It seems to be departing so I got a first wee walk in ages around a snowy Ardinning. Quite lovely.
We had a nice walk up to Greenside Reservoir this afternoon. Blue skies & clouds with a fair breeze. Lots of sees, thistles & rosebay all the way. lots of angelica & meadowsweet too. Plenty of butterflies, green veined whites, peacocks, a couple of red admirals and a small tortoiseshell. Quite a few small dragonflies to fast to id. A fox running through the long grass. Plenty of goldfinches.
