I was very excited to see my first golden plovers for over 15 years today, three of them at Musselburgh. Beautiful birds, but far too far away to even try to take a photo! My 100th species for the year too! (You can see my up to date bird list for the year here).
Also excited to see my first burnet moth for many years, which obligingly stayed still for a photo

The whole grassland area by the side of the John Muir Walkway is a mass of wildflowers at the moment, mostly vetches and clovers
reed buntings, meadow pipits and skylarks.
