Yesterday, we read via the Edinburgh Natural History Society that thousands of toadlets had emerges over the past couple of days from Blackford Pond. So today we went along to see what we could see! The grass round the pond was moving with the toadlets and we had to rescue several of them from the path
It's very early for toadlets to be emerging, and I've no idea what prompted them!
We then walked into the Hermitage of Braid and were happy to find lots of ladybird larvae on the nettles
ringlet butterflies flitting round Midmar Paddock (which unfortunately may be built on if the current owner has their way.) There's a petition to save Midmar Paddock here).
