Even as lockdown has eased here in Scotland, Crafty Green Boyfriend and I have continued to take our #DailyExercise in the local cemeteries, most weekdays at least!
We noticed several fungi had emerged over the weekend
These look like large edible field mushrooms, but best leave them alone as they may be a similar looking inedible species.
There were only a few hoverflies around today, but this Syrphus sp chose to pose nicely in the greater bindweed flower
Notice the brambles (blackberries) ripening in the background!
North Merchiston Cemetery today was dominated by the sparrowhawks and magpies. The nesting pair of sparrowhawks seem to be arguing with the local magpies and the four birds were chasing each other around screeching loudly! Crafty Green Boyfriend managed to get this photo of one of the sparrowhawks
