Today was a slight reshuffling of the characters of the week on Balcomie Beach. The Mediterranean gull was back wading through the thick seaweed soup with the other gulls. Although a lot of seaweed has been washed away, what remains has decomposed into a thick black sludge, slowing the waves coming in like an oil spill. But unlike oil this is all good and there were again hundreds of gulls and starlings feeding on the seaweed maggots washing out from it. And the knot was still around as a lone shorebird at the feast.
