We were first alerted to the red-shoed crow by @markalexander_m on Twitter four days ago.
It appears along the cycle path between Tesco and St Mark’s Park, just after Warriston Junction, on the bridge over the southern approach to the cemetery.
By the time Spurtle passed this lunchtime, the bird had been joined by words.
Whether these are by the original Mystery Mosaicist or somebody else is unclear. But it’s an odd phenomenon we’d like to see more of in 2019.
We wish all our readers a very happy Hogmanay and a ‘perjink’ New Year.
