I joined Crafty Green Boyfriend for a lunchtime wander round Corstorphine Hill today. There was plenty to see today!
We found a species of hoverfly new to both of us, the UK Hoverfly group on Facebook were able to identify it as a Myathropa florea. (Thanks Crafty Green Boyfriend for this photo).
This area of the hill below was full of whitethroats (Neither of us have ever seen that many whitethroats together!)! You can't see them in this photo but they were flying round from shrub to shrub,we both think that the youngsters were fledging
Nearby we saw this stone
song thrush anvil, where the bird will smash snails before eating their bodies.
Back on the main road the bunnies were outside the hotel as they usually are
abandoned house -
swallows fly in and out
of the windows.
great captures. glad you were able to get identification on the hoverfly. that bunny is huge but adorable. it appears to be very content. have a great day/ weekend...
I enjoyed seeing where you went for your walk and how cute the big bunny is.
Looks like a really interesting place to walk.
Please send a rabbit over here. We could use one, too!
Didn't know about the anvils -- how very interesting. You two know how to find the small miracles ... this post is full of them.
Gorgeous bunnies. I still remember seeing some from our caravan in Cornwall a few years ago.
Greetings from London.
A really enjoyable walk, nice images.
Some very nice photo's, aren't bunnies cute!
All the best Jan
