We went for a walk round Corstorphine Hill today. The whole place looks like a winter wonderland but it's treacherous underfoot in places, with the footpaths all polished to a slippery shine that plays havoc with my sense of balance. Here are some photos I managed to take
And a close up of that last tree
Corstorphine Hill gives wonderful views across Edinburgh, and over to the Pentland Hills
Yesterday we found this beautiful feather in one of our local cemeteries. I asked on the Edinburgh Natural History Society Facebook Page and it turns out it's a woodcock featherFeatherbase as a resource for identifying feathers. The link will take you to the UK index, but it's a global site, so wherever you are, you can use it to identify bird feathers.
