The wind was a light south-easterly overnight after some stronger southerly winds during the day. Sufficient to push a lot of seabirds close in to Crail yesterday evening. A steady stream of gannets, kittiwakes, fulmars and common gulls passing with the first puffins of the season further out. This morning there was a willow warbler singing from the Denburn sheep field – the first of the year and about a week earlier than usual. There were also some chiff-chaffs singing from odd garden locations  suggesting they came in last night as well.
