We had a wonderful walk round Corstorphine Hill in Edinburgh today. The weather was very springlike though changeable, windy with the occasional flurry of rain but mostly bright and clear. The trees are still only in bud, though there are some fine displays of catkins and the birds are definitely in spring mood! We saw bullfinches, chaffinches, goldfinches, song thrushes, robins, blackbirds, blue tits, great tits and coal tits. We also had a very good view of a low flying buzzard that swept across the sky above our heads.
