The fourth day of haar, so another damp and foggy morning. A bit less thick than yesterday so there was more activity – several blackcaps were singing as they start their second broods, and the whitethroats were out and about with their fledged chicks. There were probably some scarcer migrants hiding out there. I only had a yellow wagtail flying invisibly overhead at Kilminning. Probably an exotic Scandinavian bird, but no telling just by call. Five years ago, before yellow wagtails started breeding in Crail, this would have been a very good bird. The rosy starling spent its third day at West Braes Crescent.
