Just a nice wee weekend walk round Dalkeith Country park we thought. Oh look there's a riverside walk we've not tried before, we said. But it turned out to be an obstacle strewn track, falling away steeply to the river and leading to scenes of what any film classification board could only describe as 'relentless mild peril'.
Still, we can laugh about it now and we saw some interesting birds (including some unexpected wigeon in a flooded field, next to the less unexpected oystercatchers, mallards and mute swans), made some new animal friends and I got some nice photos, mostly from the road before we reached the new riverside walk.
Needless to say we won't try that path again, even if the ground is less muddy!
Linking up with Saturday Critters.
Meanwhile, I'm delighted that one of my items has been included in this UK Upcycled Etsy Treasury, curated by Tanglecrafts.
