My garden is full of ticking robins. I usually only have one in my back garden but first thing this morning there were three or four. All grumpily ticking at each other and trying to assert their authority. Yesterday I noticed that there were robins everywhere. More of the storm’s work although the robins were probably on their way here anyway from Scandinavia, they just got here a bit quicker. This robin song and dance is a feature of Crail every year as the winter migrants slot into the spaces between our residents for the winter.

Robin – Crail had many new arrivals today for the winter

The sea was nearly flat calm today until the, now westerly, wind got up again. It seems almost impossible to imagine what it was like two days ago. There are still lots of guillemots in Roome Bay taking it easy and a steady passage of sandwich terns. Otherwise the sea was quiet today with even the gannets in short supply.

Juvenile gannets passing Crail in the storm on Tuesday – I couldn’t resist posting this brilliant photo as a reminder
