I walked from Crail to the new distillery at Cambo via Wormiston and the coastal path this morning. One of Crail’s best walks especially on a frosty morning with the winter sunshine behind you. I was really pleased to see a pair of ravens again near Crail, on the fields at Randerston Farm. There have been a couple of sightings of ravens this autumn to add to my initial sighting in April this year so I am now really hopeful that the pair might be here to stay. They are very early nesters and so I will be looking for them in February to confirm them back as residents to the East Neuk. The rest of the walk was what might be expected at this time of year with highlights of 15 or so teal on the shore probably driven there by the icy weather inland, a flock of seven greylag geese doing a low flyby with their distinctive farmyard goose honks and a couple of stonechats.
