The Zebras of Edinburgh

I joined Crafty Green Boyfriend again for a lunchtime walk round Corstorphine Hill. We were delighted to have some close views of the zebras

These zebras aren't wild in Edinburgh of course, they're on the African Plains of Edinburgh Zoo, but can be clearly seen from the footpath round Corstorphine Hill.

We also heard a green woodpecker laughing near this tree below, while a pair of long tailed tits were building a nest in the gorse.

Was the woodpecker laughing at the striped horses? :)

Oh, I'd like to see a green woodpecker. We have several varieties, but all seem to have the dress code of black, red and white. :D

I watched a long tailed tit gathering nesting material from an alder tree in the park the other day, not seen anybody checking out the bird boxes.

odds on my first singing chiff chaff tomorrow!

What a nice addition to the local sights!

No unicorns?

Oh how good to enjoy a walk and see zebra's.

All the best Jan
