Walk around Kilpatrick muir this afternoon. Warm sunny, blue skys, lots of butterflies: small heath; green veined whites; orange tips, orange not identified. Red Kite flying above the moor, 1st I’ve seen here.
Ardinning this afternoon, first cuckoo I’ve heard this year and the first nuthatch I’ve ever seen. Very blurry photo:
A warm evening. Mallard chick on Bingham pond.
At the far side of the forth & Clyde Canal. Quite often see foxes sleeping along the canal in the sun.
Fox hunting in the long grass, late afternoon on the edge of the Kilpatrick Braes.
Quite a few redwings in Victoria Park this morning. Didn’t get a good photo.
I’ve seen kingfishers on the Kelvin several times over the years, but today we watched this wee guy fishing across the river catching a few wee fish. So beautiful, thrilling.
Had a walk around Ardinning this afternoon, few dragonflies about, photos of Common Darter (pretty sure)
and Black Darter, perhaps?
