So on to my extra and definately final day of our Scotland trip.
We decided to spend the extra day at New Lanark World Heritage Site and The Falls Of Clyde reserve.

When we got to the viewpoint we first noticed the male Peregrine (Tiercel) sat on the ledge opposite us.
One person asked "Can they fly quicker than a car?"
I wanted to respond "No, because cars can't fly";) but just mentioned the speeds they can reach.
After about 45 minutes the female flew down and past the male disappearing down river.This made the male retreat on his ledge and lay down out of the way.
An hour spent with these magnificent birds of prey made all my arthritic pain from the walk disappear, better than any prescribed medication.
On the way back I noticed lots of Scarlet Elf Cup fungi along the river bank.
A Dipper.Bobbing up and down on the rocks and diving into the fast stream.
