Three red-backed shrikes on the May Island this morning…I was out at Kilminning at lunchtime in hope. No shrikes again for us and my only consolation was one of the most tuneful blackcaps I have heard in a long time. It was really going for it and I could enjoy it in relative peace – being a Monday instead of my usual weekend day visit there was only a tractor cutting the grass on the airfield and a couple of go-carts on the track next door. A flock of eight Canada geese with a couple of greylags flew over: Canada geese are now a summer certainty after being quite a rarity in the Crail area, although they mostly stick to the coast around Boarhills. Number 130 for the year list which will now stay fairly static until the migration season starts again in the August.
