There were more little auks passing today heading south, most very far out, but some passing by Crail into the Forth this morning. I walked on the loop from Kilminning to Fife Ness along the coastal path and then back along the road. Great visibility but a bi t breezy and damp. The best bird was a snow bunting coming in off the sea at Fife Ness. I heard its distinctive “trrrrip” call and got onto it as it came in over the rocks and headed towards Kilminning. A classic late November migrant and very appropriate as the weather finally starts to get colder.
