The south-easterly gales have finally gone. I actually saw the sun rise this morning. At the solstice the sun nearly rises over the May Island viewed from my house but today it was reassuringly well to the east – it feels like the year has really turned. The first bit of sunshine since before Christmas more or less. I heard a pied wagtail calling as it flew over the garden at sunrise – number 86 for the year list. A relatively common species but they seem to be scarce in Crail mid-winter.
