More storm and snow showers. The gulls at Balcomie were exploiting the wild surf by hovering into the wind just above the breakers. They then swooped down behind them to pick up one of the many small and large animals, dead or alive, scoured from the bottom. And the waves really have really been scouring. About 30 centimeters depth of sand has gone from Balcomie Beach so it is now more pebbles with mud in between than the sandy beach it was. It’s a really profound change: a lot of sand has gone from Kingsbarns beach too but it’s still a beach.
