No frogs or toads though, although there was quite a lot of frogspawn in a flooded field nearby.
On the side of Braid Hill we saw a chiffchaff, hopping around crazily, it must have just landed from its migration basck from Africa. it was singing exuberently as were many other birds. In the distance we saw a buzzard, circling slowly in the breeze.
We then walked along the Braid Burn, beautiful with wild garlic leaves and full of small birds singing and jackdaws busily flying around, making a lot of noise.
