turkey tail fungus
The birds were all chasing each other today in Colinton Dell by the Water of Leith. I saw a very exciteable group of blue tits flying round a tree stump, a dipper pair checking out holes in the river bank and a wren prospecting an old moss covered fallen tree.
The jackdaws were flocking and wheeling round the woods.
Meanwhile the tawny owl sat quiet and still in its usual roost hole, its head turned to the side.
The woods were alive with birdsong too and the weather was mild and dry. I know it's still a long time to go really, but it did feel like the beginning of spring.....
