There is a flock of about 75 lapwing at the turn off to Wormiston on the St Andrews road at the moment. They are feeding in the weedy field on the east side of the road in between using the temporary pool on the other side of the road. We don’t often have such big flocks hanging around. I wonder if they were a migrating flock grounded by the storms. Other more obvious signs of the recent storms are puffins turning up at harbour beach (both dead and alive) and a long-tailed duck female which is now feeding regularly inside the harbour at high tide. It’s a rare chance to get a very close view of a long-tailed duck. When it’s not in the harbour it will be just off harbour beach.
