It's a lovely clear cold winter day today. We started our walk at Blackford Pond where we were most surprised to see these two female mallards fighting
We walked from the Pond past Midmar Paddock
Then we walked into the Hermitage of Braid, where the Braid Burn runs at the bottom of a steep sided valley. I always like looking up into the trees high above on the hill.
and this grey wagtail, which wouldn't stop moving, so the photo is quite blurry!
It's a lovely walk to do on a cold sunny day (or any day in fact).
Thanks to Crafty Green Boyfriend for the photos of the birds (other than the swan) in this post.
