March 4th   Leave a comment

Early March sometimes feels like a holding pattern. Things about to change but not quite there yet. There was a north-easterly today, and easterlies yesterday, so I had a vague hope of a black redstart or an early white wagtail. But the only real change was lots of gannets coming past Fife Ness – at least a lot more compared to the one an hour of last week – although with still many more to go over the next few weeks. On Balcomie Beach it was just the usual sanderling with a few purple sandpipers among them pretending to be dunlin, probing the beach rather than keeping to the rocks.
