The weather was (to say the least) very changeable yesterday! We went for a walk along the road at the base of Arthur's Seat all the way to Duddingston Loch.
We were delighted to see two Cinnabar Moths, although the bright yellow and black caterpillars are very common on Ragwort plants, we very rarely see the beautiful adults (thanks to Crafty Green Boyfriend for the lovely photo)
We also saw several damselflies, mostly Blue Tailed Damselflies (this photo is the best I could do!)
though also other blue damselflies that we didn't get close enough to identify to species level.
Canada Geese, Mute Swans and Mallards were gathered at the edge of the loch.
