Beautiful Flowers on Arthur's Seat

We managed a walk round Arthur's Seat yesterday in between films! It's nice to see that the grass has been minimally mown, with much of the area left to grow flowers

The vipers bugloss contrasts nicely with the crosswort

Sadly though we saw very few insects. All the slopes where rabbits would normally keep the grass short are as rich in flowers as the areas where the relaxed mowing regime is allowing flowers to thrive. So it looks like this is another area where rabbits are declining in number.

We were delighted to see this lovely female blackcap

I still have a couple of films from Edinburgh International Film Festival to watch and review, but I will start posting about our Shetland trip soon.
