Ayrshire Weekend - North Glen App

Followed the Water of App north-east of Carlock House into Upper Glen App. The banks of the burn are very rich in flora and can be superb for insects on a hot day. Not bad today considering the weather. Before this I checked Pinbain and Kilantringan on the way down though it was still a bit cool at this time - no Four-spotted Chasers found.
