The little auk spectacle continues as the gales continue. It hasn’t really got light today and the south-easterly winds are still pushing mountainous waves into Crail. Stand on the beach at Roome Bay or at Saucehope for as many minutes as you can bear and you will see little auks battling along the shore. They have been pushed into the Forth and are struggling back into the open sea, caught between the land and waves. Hats off to these tiny survivors if you still have a hat.
