I joined Crafty Green Boyfriend for his lunchtime walk round Corstorphine Hill today (his office is just next to the hill, I'm most envious!). We got caught in the rain, but saw lots of interesting things to keep us happy, including these beautiful pink fungi, I'm not sure what species they are, perhaps Amethyst Deceiver or Lilac Bell Cap?
bullfinches, the males with their bright pink chests, the females more sober in colour. There were also goldfinches, great tits and blue tits.
On the other side of the hill, two buzzards were chasing each other. One of them flew directly in front of us, quite an impressive sight!
