A grey but still very mild day. It seemed very quiet on a circuit to Kilminning and back this morning. A flock of more than 20 magpies at the airfield was quite exceptional; they are becoming more common with each year now that they are being left alone. I was also passed by a flock of 12 purple sandpiper at Sauchope, heading up towards Fife Ness. I wonder how many I missed when I was counting them along the coast last week.
