Hermitage of Braid
Today we walked threough the Hermitage of Braid, an area of woodland running by a river in the south of Edinburgh. We found some new paths today, going through steeper parts of the woodland. We had a really good view of a green woodpecker working on its nest in a dead tree, we spent about five minutes watching, its rare to get such a good view of this species. We also saw several wrens, a tree creeper, chaffinches and a grey wagtail as well as lots of blue tits, great tits, jackdaws collecting nesting material, and woodpigeons.
