Possil Marsh wildlife reserve

Possil Marsh is just across the main Glasgow Milngavie road from Summerston, on the northern edge of Possil Park suburb. Central Scotland, lots of powerlines. This is looking South across the loch.

And looking North.

And here is a slightly anxious Daniel in the scrub. There is a simple hard surfaced track around the reserve but only one or two places where you can work in to the scrubland and nowhere you can access the water's edge without waders.

And on the meteorite plaque

(no, it's not the meteorite itself!)

Tufted Loosestrife

Burr of some sort

Kidney Vetch just in bud

Dog Roses by the Forth and Clyde canal

Water Lilies in the canal

And a mayfly on the tow path

Then back to the reserve for some forget-me-nots

Orange Hawkweed

And what is probably a Pyramidal Orchid, if it was fully opened
