Another rainy morning but with a south-easterly wind bringing the seabirds in closer. There was a steady passage of razorbills and guillemots past Fife Ness and a lot of gannets. Their numbers will be picking up steadily now until there are hundreds, if not thousands, passing Fife Ness in an hour as they shuttle back and forth from the Bass Rock. There are other signs of spring – several robins are singing during the night under the streetlights in Crail and I heard a blackbird tuning up at dusk yesterday.

One of the many gannets back this weekend
