We had a lovely walk along the Firth of Forth from Silverknowes to Cramond at the weekend. The landscape looked beautiful in the winter sunshine
The island is joined to the mainland by a causeway that is only accessible at low tide
There were plenty of birds around, including a flock of around 50 lapwings. These plovers are declining across the UK, but can still be seen regularly around Cramond. We didn't get photos of the lapwings, but Crafty Green Boyfriend got some lovely photos of this pied wagtail, with its winter plumage of a slightly yellow face.
