Fulmars on Arthur's Seat
Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh is well known for many things, including the remarkable range of birds and other wildlife found on its slopes and in its valleys. I took a birdwatching class round Hunter's Bog in the middle of Arthurs Seat yesterday and we saw and heard a good number of birds. We didn't however see any fulmars. Fulmars are sea birds but they nest on the cliffs of Arthurs Seat. It's difficult to get a close view of them on the cliffs but this lovely sculpture by Lorne MacKean outside Dynamic Earth (sited neat the base of Arthur's Seat) is much easier to photograph!
