The sea was the wild spectacle today. Some of the biggest waves I have ever seen from Crail. This afternoon only the great black-backed gulls looked really comfortable in the wind, hanging over Castle Walk effortlessly. There may have been lots of things passing at sea but the spray and rain made bird watching fairly difficult. I did see some long-tailed ducks passing – another bird comfortable in a storm. But even the tough goldeneyes were more sensibly in the calmer waters of Roome Bay, with about ten there mid-afternoon.
