Arthur's Seat



It was a wild, wet and windy day today for our traditional New year's Day walk round Arthur's Seat.



We saw a total of 20 species of birds, despite the bad weather, including a flock of long tailed tits that followed us for a while, a goldcrest and a mistle thrush. There were lots of birds on the St Margaret's Loch, including this young mute swan, who seemed unperturbed by the choppy waters
