October Butterfly

A red admiral butterfly making the most of the valerian flowers in the October sunshine. After a cold spring there seemed to be few butterflies about in the summer. However, in the last few weeks there have been a few peacock, red admiral and painted lady butterflies in the garden.

A Tangle of Creels

A tangled jumble of ropes and several creels, presumably washed up on the beach at Lundin Links by the recent storm.

Sunday was a beautiful day for a walk and Largo Bay looked stunning.

Foxgloves and Lupins on display.

 Foxgloves at the top of the Massney Braes.

 Lupins just to the south of the wooded area between the two paths in the Serpentine Walk. I always associate lupins with railway banks and these were not far from the old railway track that ran through Largo.

Heron at the Bridge

Heron perched on a branch of a willow tree at the bridge over the Keil Burn in Lundin Links. It seemed quite unfazed  by the constant stream of traffic just feet away on the road.

Bluebells amongst the Trees

 Bluebells in the trees at the top of the Massney Braes in Lundin Links.
Bluebells line the path in the Serpentine Walk.
In the Serpentine Walk in Largo an orange-tip butterfly lands on a blue or in this case pink bell flower.

Vixen with Foxcubs

Looking over the fence to the old railway track while walking down the steps leading to the Massney Braes in Lundin  Links, spotted a vixen feeding her cubs.
The vixen eventually wandered off into the undergrowth, but the cubs stayed around playing in the sunshine. I think there were 6 or 7 altogether.

Maybe the foxhole. Used to be a lot of rabbits in this area. Haven't seen any in recent weeks. Perhaps, the foxes are the reason.
