We were able to watch this heron for a while as it wrestled with (and swallowed) a large fish then flew up river to drink and rest.
We then walked into Colinton, which is a village that has become part of Edinburgh but still retains its village feel. Just as we were about to get on the bus to come home, we saw several redwings in the trees near the bus stop. Redwings are one of the UK's winter thrushes, so it must really be winter now.
