Water of Leith again!

We were up in Edinburgh last week for our fantastic daughter's birthday and took the opportunity for a walk along the Water of Leith again, we went to the stretch where we have seen Dippers in the past, but they weren't showing this time, we did get this Heron:
and at least 4 Grey Wagtails:

We explored a part of the river that we hadn't been to before, you wouldn't believe that you are in the middle of Edinburgh:

A great walk, with still more to explore on our next visit.

  1. Thank you for the post. As one who appreciates birding in South Florida, USA, I was drawn to your post. I recently published a book about the life of an 18th-century West Midlands preacher named Francis Asbury. The book, Black Country, incorporates not only the amazing history of this young man but also my love for the natural wildlife and plantlife of the West Midland region. I think you may enjoy some of these passage in the book. For more on the book, Black Country, I would like to invite you to the website for the book series, The Asbury Triptych Series. The trilogy based on the life of Francis Asbury, the young protégé of John Wesley and George Whitefield, opens with the book, Black Country. The opening novel in this three-book series details the amazing movement of Wesley and Whitefield in England and Ireland as well as its life-changing effect on a Great Britain sadly in need of transformation. Black Country also details the Wesleyan movement's effect on the future leader of Christianity in the American colonies, Francis Asbury. The website for the book series is www.francisasburytriptych.com. Please enjoy the numerous articles on the website. Again, thank you, for the post.
