Beautiful Corstorphine HIll

As I've mentioned before, Crafty Green Boyfriend works just opposite Corstorphine HIll and walks up the hill every lunchtime. I often join him on a Friday and today was one of those days. It was  lovely and bright while we were up there

We saw lots of birds, including a nuthatch that perched was deinking from a puddle then flew onto a tree branch very close to us, a treecreeper that was creeping up a tree very close to us, a buzzard that circled over our heads, a mistle thrush flying around and eventually landing on the top of a tree, and redwings searching for food amongst the fallen leaves. We also heard, but didn't see bullfinches.

It was lovely also to see this scarlet elf cup fungus, though the photo is very poor.

Where's your favourite place for a lunchtime walk?

It's always nice to get out and about and enjoy a walk.
We have a small lake (with ducks) nearby and often have a leisurely walk around it.

Enjoy the coming weekend.

All the best Jan
