Weather Benign and A Cycle to Dunbar
Saturday 19th November Light W
Cold and sunny
Pancakes for breakfast set me up nicely for a day cycling. Birding opportunities will be lacking as I head along the east coast towards Dunbar.
So seeing a group of goosanders on a river in Musselborough is wonderful. The beautiful ducks are so close.
Turning a corner at the end of the road adjacent to the river I come across knitted red poppies, hundreds of them.
It is so different to cycle with a breeze, no matter how light, behind me. I eat up the miles with just the occasional stop to admire the view along the Firth.
