Crafty Green Boyfriend is back in the office on a part time basis which means he walks round Corstorphine Hill at lunchtimes. Yesterday I was able to join him for a walk in the sunshine.
We saw several speckled wood butterflies
and a fair number of caterpillars of the cinnabar moth eating ragwort
We noticed this shield bug larva - probably a red legged shield bug
The hairy stereum fungus is emerging again on fallen trunks
and there is some impressive jelly ear fungus around too
