I am glad you can bird anywhere, anytime. On my four minute walk to pick up my lift to work this morning – from opposite the Co-op along Marketgate to Roome Bay Avenue I saw a blackbird, a herring gull, rooks, jackdaws, woodpigeons, goldfinches, blue tits, and a collared dove; flying over, a sparrowhawk, a grey heron, starlings, a redwing, two grey wagtails and a black-headed gull, and I heard a robin, chaffinch and a great tit. And the last bird, as I arrived at my destination, a star end to my micro bird watch: a brambling flying over the sheep field, calling to draw attention to itself. 18 species. It made me want to keep going and make it 50 in a mad dash around Crail. But sadly it was St Andrews for me and indoors for the rest of the day.
