There was a black redstart reported from Kilminning yesterday evening so I was down there early this morning. I wasn’t very optimistic – they can be hard to find down on the rocky shore down there. But it was a perfect spring morning with bright sunshine, no wind and the temperature climbing. And there were three northern wheatears on the rocks and three barn swallows overhead. Today and yesterday were perfect migration conditions: there were more wheatears around the airfield and later, swallows all the way between Crail and St Andrews.
