Now that lockdown in Scotland has been eased very slightly, allowing us unlimited #DailyExercise, we've decided to take a longer walk on Saturdays, though other days our walk will remain the same route through the local park and cemeteries as it has been every day since lockdown was imposed.
Yesterday we walked along a cyclepath, then along part of the Water of Leith to Saughton Park.
We passed an area of rough bare ground surrounded by bushes, where we saw two rabbits, including this adorable youngster
We studied the green fence outside Saughton Park which is famous for it's insect life and there were several ladybirds, including this, which i think is a variant form of the two spot ladybird
this 10 spot ladybird
and this cream spot ladybird
