Sunshine and showers, so set off on one of our favourite local walks at Dunskey Glen to look for signs of spring. Plenty of birds about, busily nesting, we counted 35 species in total!
Great to see the beech trees finally have leaves!
A pair of Ringed Plovers were on the shore line…
…they often nest here as last year we found chicks
Spring Squill just coming out
Port Kale, the Southern Upland way passes here
The old Coastal Interpretation Centre, not sure when it was last used
Plenty of water in the burn today
Wet Violets after a heavy shower
We would normally now return on the lower path up through the glen but it was closed as it is in a dangerous state so we had to retrace our steps.
Fresh beech leaves
Bluebells only just coming out, very late this year
I was’t quite quick enough with this shot, the Roe Deer saw us and took flight!
