Glorious Gorse on Arthur's Seat
Arthur's Seat, which is wonderfully yellow and coconut-scented at the moment because of all the gorse.
A lot of birds were singing, mostly chaffinches, but also a lot of willow warblers in the scrubby woodland around the lower parts of the hill (I seem to be hearing more willow warblers this year than normal, which is good because they're a species in decline) and chiffchaffs and blackcaps too. We also saw a kestrel flying around the hill.
