The bar-tailed godwit of a couple of days ago is still around Balcomie Beach. It was feeding on its own in the surf this evening. Later there was also a mixed flock of waders further up the beach – sanderling, dunlin and ringed plovers. Back in Crail, the swifts are all back now and screaming their way over the rooftops. I think many of the swallows and certainly the house martins are now only just in as well. They are all making up for lost time.
