I joined Crafty Green Boyfriend for a lunchtime wander round Corstorphine Hill today. There was plenty to see today!
We found a species of hoverfly new to both of us, the UK Hoverfly group on Facebook were able to identify it as a Myathropa florea. (Thanks Crafty Green Boyfriend for this photo).
This area of the hill below was full of whitethroats (Neither of us have ever seen that many whitethroats together!)! You can't see them in this photo but they were flying round from shrub to shrub,we both think that the youngsters were fledging
Nearby we saw this stone
song thrush anvil, where the bird will smash snails before eating their bodies.
Back on the main road the bunnies were outside the hotel as they usually are
abandoned house -
swallows fly in and out
of the windows.
