The May Island continues to host bluethroats and a thrush nightingale and I can only look at it in the distance. We are still missing all the migrants as the fine weather continues and they fly high overhead. There was a male redstart reported at Kilminning yesterday but no sign of it today. I saw just a male wheatear down at Fife Ness in the afternoon. I did see my first common terns of the year (no. 128 for the Crail year list) fishing inshore with the sandwich and arctic terns. And the many hares that were in the fields between Fife Ness and Crail on the way back were another consolation.
