Easter Craiglockart Hill and Pond

The weather is beautiful today, mild and sunny. It really feels like Spring! Crafty Green Boyfriend and I walked round Easter Craiglockart Hill. The hill has some wonderful views across Edinburgh

The gorse is in bloom and smells distinctly of coconut in the warm air

We were very happy to get some great views of this kestrel

We also saw a buzzard, which didn't stop for a photo! We continued our walk to Craiglockart Pond, 


where there were good numbers of birds, including these Canada geese.

The bulrushes at the edge of the pond were catching the light beautifully

So sad the buzzard didn't pause for you! Lovely getting outdoors!
