The black redstart is still about in Roome Bay. This lunchtime it was shuttling between the creels washed up below the big red cliffs at the east end of the beach and the water pipe outlet just below the footpath above the beach before it turns to go back up the hill. It is still shy, moving well away along the beach if you get closer than about 50 meters. Once again it was feeding around the high tide seaweed piles with pied and grey wagtails, and rock pipits, but the robins seemed to be leaving it alone today.

There are still lots of bullfinches about. I had groups yesterday at every site I visited – some years I can struggle to find one. There are a few in Crail too, visiting gardens. I came across a group of four today feeding on tree buds at Balcomie Caravan Park.
