Despite easterly winds not much has changed today. Still only one willow warbler singing at Kilminning. Sandwich terns passing, and one or two swallows in most places. New additions were couple of common whitethroat singing at Kilminning, but no sedge warblers as yet along that bit of the coastal path. At Fife Ness the usual Forth breeding seabirds were passing, with a steady stream of gannets close in which will be a feature now until the late autumn. Balcomie Beach is almost waderless now: only oystercatchers and a single ringed plover seem to be resident, although there were three fairly well summer plumaged sanderling with them today.
