The first pink-footed geese of the year came in today. I saw small flocks labouring in from the sea from Crail to St Andrews this morning. I suspect they set off a couple of days ago from Iceland with the light winds at the end of last week and got caught up with the westerly gales of Sunday. Consequently they probably got blown over the North Sea and so now are coming in from the east rather than the north as usual.
