The weather has been perfect today. Still, sunny and mild (with a chill in the shade). I had a lunchtime walk up Corstorphine Hill with Crafty Green Boyfriend. We were entertained by this squirrel. Yes, I know it's blurry, but that gives some indication of how busily it was feeding!
The yew berries are now out, they're such a lovely sight (though poisonous, so don't touch!).
Up above our heads, a group of house martins were twittering excitedly, they'll be leaving us soon. There were also a lot of what looked like chiffchaffs in the trees, they'll be going back to their wintering grounds soon too.
