It has been a mild Christmas again. Temperatures at 10 degrees and the house sparrows in my front garden not even bothering to empty the seed feeder every day. There are very few skylarks about and most of the corn buntings around Crail seem to have gone elsewhere – probably inland because there have been no frosts. I did flush three corn buntings from the stubble field by Pinkerton this afternoon. The black redstart was on its usual creel below the cliffs in Roome Bay and there were three grey wagtails in the area as well. It is still generally quiet at sea with very little movement at all. I am off to Liberia now for a couple of weeks chasing tagged whinchats, so even warmer weather and some birding excitement to look forward to.
