The harebells are in full bloom in small patches in Colinton Dell alongside the Water of Leith. There seem to be more of them than there were last year. They're very pretty flowers, sometimes known as the Scottish bluebell (or just as bluebell by many Scots).
sparrowhawks were flying around, making lots of noise. I think their chicks had just fledged, I remember the same commotion about the same time last year.
I'm delighted to have two poems in the Birds Issue of Cyclamens and Swords.
