We visit Linlithgow Loch every year at about this time, hoping to see the great crested grebes performing their courtship dance. Today the weather was mild and calm and we had a lovely walk all the way round the loch.
Although we saw a few grebes, they mostly weren't really interested in each other

I did however capture this photo of our favourite alder tree by the loch, which is looking particularly beautiful at the moment
