I had one of those perfect moments this evening. I was swimming with my family off Balcomie Beach – the sky a perfect blue, beach completely deserted except for us and even some surf. And the sea was alive with grey seals, popping their heads out to look at us and then shyly disappearing. Then back again a bit closer in a game of grandmother’s footsteps. And just above, hundreds of swallows passing down the coast. I even had a pintail flying overhead – a rare duck for Crail and luckily quite distinctive enough to identify while lying on your back in the waves.
