Everything is looking very spring like today with continued sunshine, although a much colder south-easterly wind. Lesser celandines are flowering out at West Braes. There is a lot of bird song and everything is in showy plumage: even the cormorants are looking fantastic, particularly in the strong spring sunshine.

Cormorant - not quite in full breeding plumage but stunning nonetheless

Out at Fife Ness this afternoon there was a good passage of seabirds in the brisk south-easterly, but nothing very unusual. Lots of guillemots, gannets and kittiwakes came past, although almost all of the kittiwakes were young birds, born last year, rather than adults.
