Another nearly flat calm day and beautiful conditions out at Balcomie Beach for just sitting and appreciating the stream of pink-footed geese flocks coming down from the north along the coast. Out at sea everything was far out: two tantalising skuas, probably pomarine, and a scattering of little gulls flashing their black and white wings amongst the larger gulls. On Balcomie Beach itself there was a tidy roost of ringed plover, dunlin and a single sanderling, looking almost snow white compared to its brown neighbours.
