I set off this morning to patrol the Dells along the Water of Leith. At that point the weather was dull but dry but it started raining almost as soon as I got along the river and became torrential later!
Poor light and rain mean there are no photos but I had some lovely wildlife encounters.
Further upstream I was delighted to see a family of nuthatches. Nuthatches have only relatively recently colonised Scotland. having spread northwards from England (as the climate has changed) so it still feels really special to see them, particularly a family with youngsters!
