We were foraging for raspberries on Wester Craiglockart Hill today. Loads of fruit to pick and loads more left for anoy other berry pickers in town!
Lovely to see the Lady's Bedstraw in full bloom too
and this particularly beautiful patch of it growing through the gorse
We were also delighted to see this beautiful adult shield bug (Pentatoma rufipes Red-legged Shieldbug)
You can find out more about this species of shield bug and the various life-stages it goes through here. It's worth clicking on the link and scrolling down a wee bit just to see the eggs of this species!
