I had coffee down on the shore between Elie and St Monans this morning. It’s always odd to sit opposite the Bass Rock rather than the May Island when you move down the coast a bit. There were several pairs of shelduck, close enough together that they were scrapping. The steep grassy banks along that part of the coast must be great nesting areas for them. I had only my second house martins of the year, wisely keeping to the coastal strip where nearly all the swallows and sand martins were, and I assume, some insects.

Shelducks are very territorial… (JA)
