Birds and Butterflies!

Today we saw this beautiful small tortoiseshell in North Merchiston Cemetery, it looks very fresh and new, as though it has just hatched

Meanwhile in Dalry Cemetery, this little robin came to say hello. It comes to say hello most days in fact! (I'm pretty sure it's the same one that comes to say hello, even though obviously there are other robins in the cemetery.)



Yesterday we also had some great sightings, including this red admiral, looking a little the worse for wear

this speckled wood

and this dunnock who was filling its beak with the sunflower seeds we had put out for the birds

Thanks to Crafty Green Boyfriend for taking the photos in this post!

Oh I’m sure it’s always the same Robin... it recognizes a friend! The butterflies and all of the birds are great!
