It's another beautiful day today and we took the bus to Haddington in East Lothian to try out the riverside walk along the Tyne to East Linton. A juvenile grey heron greeted us near the bridge as we started the walk
where it is quite open and the sheep need to gather under the trees to escape the heat
We saw lots of buzzards, flying high on the thermals, none of them close enough to capture on camera, several grey herons and a group of ten goosanders, which kept flying up and down the river. There were also several large white butterflies and several speckled woods too, thanks to Crafty Green Boyfriend for this photo
It's a lovely walk, quite manageable at 6 miles and with a good part of it being shaded by trees to avoid heat exhaustion on a hot day.
