I took a trip to Musselburgh today as I often do. It was lovely to see the young birds, like this family of mute swans
Last year I blogged about seeing them in early July, here. But before that I hadn't seen them in any number since as a child, I used to see them all over the walls in my parents garden on hot summer days.
I also noticed the patterns on this snail shell.
Also keep your ears open too! I recently read that skylarks often include snatches of other birds songs in their own songs. At this time of year, the skylarks are always singing along the John Muir Walkway and today was no exception. I listened and listened but they sounded purely like skylarks, I couldn't hear any other bird sounds in there. Such glorious music, skylarksong and I'm very happy that I can hear it so frequently as skylarks are sadly declining in numbers in this country.
