The geese are still coming in. I could see longs lines of them out at the horizon this morning heading towards the Lothian coast from the east. The closer in ones and the few groups flying directly over Crail were all pink-feets. There were fewer meadow pipits passing along the coast today but still a steady stream of small flocks. There were more skylarks though and a small flock of sand martins: I also saw a few swallows later on over the cow field at Kingsbarns. This evening I had another look for geese – we still haven’t had any barnacle geese yet and they should come through at any time. No geese at all, but I was watching a bit late and only the cormorants and gulls flying to roost on the May Island were passing Crail.
