I tried to seawatch yesterday from my house, but I couldn’t even see the sea. We had 18 mm of rain during the storm, most of it horizontal. I suspect there was a lot passing out of sight. There were only a few leftovers this morning passing Crail: little gulls, arctic and great skuas, common and sandwich terns. The storm, although predominantly easterly did not seem to bring any migrants in. Kilminning was quiet this morning with only a fallen tree and northern wheatear new. This evening though I found a very cold female speckled wood butterfly resting in my garden: a first for the garden and only about my third or fourth in this part of Fife. The butterfly invasion continues.

Northern wheatear today (JA)
