Viking Festival in Leith! Not sure why but the kids were having a great time. Making Viking swords and shields out or cardboard, trying out the Pesteraunt (edible bugs!) and having interactive Viking stories. The brids of prey are working birds used by Rentokil to keep down pidgeons and gulls.I found out about it from my friend who says she uses the Edinburgh Reporter’s daily email to keep up to date on what is happening in the city.
