Corstorphine Hill is a great place to spot butterflies, so as I often do, I joined Crafty Green Boyfriend up there this lunchtime.
We started in this meadow
2 ringlets, a red admiral and a small tortoiseshell
picking a few raspberries as we went and enjoying the rosebay willowherb
A buzzard soared overhead
The song thrush's anvil has been well used recently
We will record all our butterfly sightings in the Big Butterfly Count which runs until 11 August.
Thanks to Crafty Green Boyfriend for taking the photos of butterflies, rosebay willowherb and buzzard.
