pussy willow by the boating lake
The old ash workings have been filled with water and form the Musselburgh Lagoons, which are wonderful for waders and ducks. Today they were quite quiet (I saw a heron, four shelduck and a couple of teal) but often they are full of hundreds of birds of many species. Today, along the nearby coast I saw velvet scoters, very distant grebes (great crested?) and twite as well as lots of waders including a grey plover.
