December 20th   Leave a comment

During my usual circuit of Balcomie, Fife Ness and Kilminning this morning I was struck by two things. The first is that this really is the quietest time of the year – nothing different anywhere to last week, and low numbers of everything that is still around. The second thing was the absence of pied wagtails. They become much scarcer around the coast during December and January. I don’t know where they are going – they must be flocking up somewhere inland. The same walk in the autumn would have 30-40 pied wagtails spaced along the coastal path and the beach.

Pied wagtail – much scarcer at Balcomie or even absent from Balcomie this time of year (JA)
