I like this sign at the entrance to the Liberton Brae office complex based in renovated farm buildings in the south of Edinburgh. I took my birdwatching class there on Monday and we were amazed by the number of skylarks that were flying around and singing above the famrland. I know that four pairs used to nest there, but it seems like there are more there now! We also heard yellowhammers. It's a great area for swallows and house martins in summer too. Further along the walk we had wonderful views of a kestrel, which was a great way to end this term of walks!
Today I did my weekly walk round Colinton Dell by the Water of Leith. Definitely spring! The undergrowth green with the leaves of wild garlic and few flowered leek and yellow with celandines (which were literally shining in today's bright sunshine) and coltsfoot. The air full of birdsong and the magical sound of great spotted woodpeckers drumming. Long tailed tits collecting nesting material and a pair of goldcrests doing an adorable little courtship dance! You can now also read my post about Why I Volunteer for the Water of Leith Conservation Trust.
