I was hoping by predicting that that the winds were going to stay the same, that it would guarantee and instant onset of easterlies. Clearly no-one was listening. The wind continues westerly, almost gale force this afternoon. Yesterday, at least, I had my first pink-footed geese. A flock passing over St Andrews in the morning, heading for the Firth of Forth and the Lothians. Today, though, was more of the same: dunlins, ringed plover and a bar-tailed godwit on Balcomie Beach; some knots on the rocks. A couple of sandwich terns at sea. An ever diminishing pool of swallows around the airfield.
