It snowed last night and we went up Corstorphine Hill today to enjoy the winter wonderland!
The woods are beautiful in the snow
The gorse is amazingly still in bloom
and the turkey tail fungus doesn't seem bothered by the snow either
the ivy looks very pretty in the snow
This great tit came down at the wall at the top of the hill (The Rest and Be Thankful) (Thanks Crafty Green Boyfriend for this photo).
We also had great views of a hunting kestrel
though we didn't see it catch anything. The voles and other small mammals it usually eats are probably all hidden away under the snow at the moment.
It was nice to see this snow-person that someone had built on the hill
