Today has been a perfect autumn day, sunny, still and mild with a bit of a chill in the air. We took a walk through the Liberton Fields up to the Braid Hills.
There are lovely views across the Liberton fields to the University buildings with Arthurs Seat in the background
skylarks flying about, though too speedy to be captured on camera. Some of them were even singing, which seems rather late in the season. There are often about 5 pairs of these lovely farmland birds nesting in these fields every year, which is great as they are declining across the UK.
There were also large numbers of rooks and woodpigeons flying round and foraging in the fields neat the Liberton Tower
We said hello to the sheep and goats at the top of the hill
From the top of the hill
there are wonderful views across Edinburgh
