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.
Ardinning Arrived before 8. Cloudy, a breeze sun occasionally warming. Comfrey, bluebells, bracken unrolling. Mallard ducklings, a dabchick, a woodpecker. Larks & curlews singing & calling. A couple of ravens. Trees greening, fresh beech. One or two cuckoos. Apple blossom.
Glorious morning on the Kilpatrick Braes. Blue skies, a touch of frost, not much breeze. Icicles, primrose, larks.
Lucifer’s Loch. Strange name, named on Google maps, not OS or open street. Had a walk this morning around the back of Jaw & Cochno: map & pics.
Corrugated iron hut reflected in loch. We got up earlish and walked up to Jaw Reservoir. Beautiful still day & blue day. Larks singing. Geese above. A few more photos on flickr
