It was grey and damp all day today, but we had a lovely walk at Edinburgh's Botanics.
We were particularly impressed by the birds we saw at the pond. The Grey Heron was the most obvious:
but looking carefully around the pond, we noticed a Kingfisher in a bush waiting for a fish to show
There were quite a lot of Mallards around and soon these two males started fighting
One of these males had a blue beak, which is quite unusual and probably means it's a domestic breed of mallard rather than a wild type Mallard.
Away from the pond there were a lot of Grey Squirrels, though I could only get two in the one photo
Thanks Crafty Green Boyfriend for the lovely bird photos in this post.
