Today’s wader was a knot, or more accurately 38 of them. My highest day count ever for Crail. There was a big flock down on the rocks in front of the hide at Fife Ness, and another 6 down at Balcomie Beach. Fife Ness is a regular haunt for passage flocks at this time of year and John sits right out at the very tip to get his close up photos.

Some of the many knots at Fife Ness this week – plus an odd one out to spot (answer below): (JA)
A knot – in winter plumage: grey, dumpy looking and with short legs (JA)
The odd one out – a redshank (JA)
