We wandered round the Hermitage of Braid today, which is looking beautiful with all the autumn leaves.
We briefly saw a group of twenty waxwings near Blackford Pond, but didn't get very close to them. Unlike yesterday, when I got caught up in a flock of fifty that were flying around the Dalry area of Edinburgh, lining up on the roofs and tv aerials and then diving down to the rowan trees to eat the berries, before wheeling off again. Quite wonderful, and some of them came very close to me! I didn't have a camera with me but this was one of those times when I was more than content just to enjoy the moment rather than lose it all in trying to focus my camera.
And for all those of you who have become Sylvain fans, he will be back tomorrow for one final blog post before he moves on to his next host.
