As well as the wonderful snowdrops we were rewarded with lots of lovely birds too including quite a large flock of redwing, a few song thrushes singing, a goldcrest, three treecreepers (for some reason I've seen these birds everywhere this year, they're a shy, retiring bird and normally quite hard to see) a flock of goldfinches all calling beautifully from the top of a tree and a female chaffinch who was shouting very loud!
We also saw a lot of Auricularia auricula-judae probably best known as Jew's Ear fungus. There's a lot of this about in the woodlands of Edinburgh at the moment, despite it normally being a summer and autumn fungus. It doesn't look it, but it is edible (not that I've ever tried!).
