I joined Crafty Green Boyfriend for a lunchtime walk round a very muddy Corstorphine Hill today. It was very misty but the air was full of birdsong and we saw several birds including this chaffinch that came down to feed on the birdfood that we put out on the wall
nuthatch kept flying onto the wall too, but immediately flew away every time so no photos of that. And the pair of jays we saw were just too far away for a photo.
On the other hand, fungi stay in one place and can easily be photographed! We were delighted to find these beautiful elf cups (apparently you need a microscope to know whether they're scarlet elf cups or ruby elf cups, but they're wonderful to see either way).
