The first redshanks were back on Balcomie Beach this evening. A flock of ten. Still in breeding plumage. They were feeding along the tideline for a few minutes and then gone, already heading further south. The black-headed gulls are also back in large numbers. There were about 50 on the beach tonight. Like the redshanks, all still in breeding plumage, but unlike them, here now for the winter.
