St Cyrus

Last weekend I visited St Cyrus National Nature Reserve near Montrose. It was a lovely day, and I really enjoye a wee walk around the reserve.

The wildlflowers were beautiful - but I realised just how specialist my 'knowledge' is with where I've lived for the last 15 odd years. I'm reasonably good at identifying coastal flowers, especially the spring ones, but found the wildflower rich machair at St Cyrus has numerous flowers which I couldn't name. Photos to follow in a separate blog post, in the hopes that someone will help name them...

(Do you call the sandy grassland full of wildflowers machair on this side of the country? I suspect not actually, maybe it's got another local name here?)

I found the remains of the old fish trap really interesting.

We had fun on the beach.

There was some wildlife too ...

All good.
