Warriston Path opens after Bridge works finish early - just 2 small closures remain on the walkway

We are delighted to learn that the Warriston Path section is now totally open as the bridge works at St Marks Park are complete. So as we head for the holidays we are just looking at the Dean landslide diversion and the small section at Bonnington (but we are hopefull this will open early 2019). If you would like an update on the Dean situation please email naturalheritageservice@edinburgh.gov.uk

Wonderful Kingfisher Image captured by @JamesW_754 and Scotland National animal spotted for the first time

From Twitter - Cycling back along the Water of Leith I came across my old friend the kingfisher. He was perched about 1.5m away from a passerby and when I noticed I nearly fell off my bike. Took a good minute to slowly unpack my camera, but the wee fella was chill 

And this is a first...spotted by Linda one of our river patrol volunteers - Captions???

Final Clean-up of the year was another big one with 22 tyres!!

Massive haul of rubbish cleared from river at Saughton on Sundays Clean-up. We were very disappointed to find 22 vehicle tyres dumped on the river bank (it took two van loads to shift them) and that local fast food places are not respecting thier riverside location.  Massive thanks to all our volunteers and the @870Sqn Dreghorn Air Cadets for all their help.
