River Almond at Cramond

Very changeable weather today, but we still enjoyed our walk along the River Almond at Cramond. There were lots of swallows with some house martins and swifts flying around, some low over the river, some above the trees. A wonderful summery sight!

We also saw this grey heron, basking in the sunlight as it patiently waited for lunch

And the cute Shetland ponies (and magpie!) in their field at the end of the walk

I love the river photos--I was blessed to take a stroll along the River Clyde while in New Lanark once and it was a delight.
