The 3rd Little Bunting for Lothian was present for its second day at the Dry Burn near Skateraw, attracting a steady stream of admirers. Other migrants include a number of Yellow-browed Warblers at a number of sites and a Black Redstart at Torness.

Hi all,

Just popping in to say hello! Found this website at the weekend, after I decided to learn how to use the DSLR that had been gathering dust in a cupboard.

I must admit, I know very little about birds, but I am finding them fascinating, and am keen to learn.

I live in Edinburgh, just meters from Holyrood Park. So far I've spent plenty of time at St Margrets Loch, as well as Portobello Beach, Friggate Park, and Duddingston Loch.

Hi Manix, welcome to the forum.
In spring you should try out The Hermitage / Braid Hills / Blackford pond area. Great for woodland birds.
For waders, grebes, divers etc check out Cramond and Musselburgh.
Also the Water of Leith Walkway between Roseburn and the Botanics often has dipper, heron and sometimes kingfisher.
I'm sure there others on the forum who also have tips on places in and around the city.
