Little Auk

At last there was a little auk passing past Crail into the Forth. Unusually it was on its own. There were some passing guillemots and razorbills to add a size reference (little auks are half the size) so I could be certain of my fairly distant sighting. Although little auks have a very wobbling flight and look unstable as they fly with very buzzy wing beats. The same is true for puffins but even more so for little auks.
