In the Pink. Common Carder Bee (I think) on Mexican aster.
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.
Nice walk yesterday morning. Meadow Sweet starting to come out. 8 Ravens flying above edge of braes. Butterflies: Ringlet, Small heath, Meadow Brown. Lots of folk on the road, Braes quiet, quite wet in long grass.
Lovely father’s day walk from Stronachlachar round the west end of Loch Katrine. warm day, but good breeze and not much in the way of hills made for pleasant stroll. lots to see. More photos.
