Another dental appointment today and the excuse again to walk along Marine Drive (if you enlarge the photo you may be able to see Cramond Island in the background)
A few large white butterflies were flying in the flower patch, though they were camerashy! I recorded these butterflies in the Big Butterfly Count which is continuing until 12 August.
It's ridiculously hot now though. It's astonishing how many media reports about the heatwave don't even mention climate change, when extreme weather conditions are one of the predicted results of climate change and this is certainly extreme weather for Scotland. There's a good article about media attitudes to Climate Change on the Business Green blog here.
