The Lapland buntings and twite continue in the same stubble field at Wormiston Farm, with the flock of about 30 twite still also on the coastal path below. The Lapland buntings were mixed in with skylarks, linnets, twite, corn buntings and meadow pipits, but as soon as everything starts flying up they form a distinct flock on their own circling around the area from where they were flushed. Another highlight today was a male stonechat on Balcomie Beach, foraging on the frozen beach, alert and brilliant in the bright sunshine.
