It was a true winter wonderland along the Water of Leith today! I walked round Colinton and Craiglockart Dells as I do most Tuesdays. This is what it looked like:
Meanwhile the dippers were very excitable, singing and chasing each other along the river. Another lovely bird sighting was a flock of blackbirds, redwings and chaffinches under some trees. Oh and I saw a pair of bullfinches, back to when I first started regularly walking the Dells, I'd see these finches every week, then I stopped seeing them but I'm now seeing them more regularly again, which is nice!
