The weather has been incredibly changeable today (currently it's pouring down!). This morning it was bright when I started my walk at Musselburgh. These lovely long tailed tits kept me compamy for a while (there were 7 of them altogether, just two in the photo, the one in the bottom left hand corner may be quite tricky to see). The photo shows them as silhouettes, but in reality they are mostly black and white and tinged with a lovely soft pink. They make a lovely churring sound as they flit through the branches.
The rain didn't last long and the sun came out again, though the wind remained strong. But once i was on the bus to come home, it was raining again and hasn't stopped since. I think this either the tailed of Hurricane Abigail or the side swip of the tail of former Hurricane Kate. (The UK has only just started naming storms and I still haven't got used to the idea!)
