Crafty Green Boyfriend and I walked this section of the Water of Leith today. The water is very heavy with sediment at the moment, probably due to the flood prevention work that's going on upstream from this section (I've emailed the Water of Leith Conservation Trust for an update on how this sediment might be affecting the river ecology).
and we saw a dipper, mallards and this grey heron, who was posing for a crowd of photographers in Stockbridge.
I also noticed this lovely fern wall - the large fern is harts tongue, the smaller is maidenhair spleenwort.
