Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

Running through the city of Edinburgh, the River known as the Water of Leith, is a lovely sight. As rivers go, it is a rather puny affair at only about 22 miles long, but what it lacks in length, it makes up for with beauty.
Along much of the river's length, a footpath allows the casual walker to take in some of the finer points, including rapids and weirs, waterfalls and more.
The village of Dean on the outskirts of the city, is particularly picturesque and not what one expects to find only a few paces from a city centre.
Kingfishers, Herons, Ducks, Moorhens and Wagtails all make the river their home - and who can blame them?
Malcolm seemed to be enjoying it all too...
It all makes for a lovely walk and not very busy either, which made a nice change after the hustle and bustle of the city.
A few bridges here and there, add to the scene. Beautiful!
