New Year's Day, part II

Quick spin around Hill of Beath showed that the Whoopers near Kingseat, having stayed for a month or so, today decided to be gone. The field which previously also held large numbers of Corvids and gulls was mysteriously empty apart from a couple of mobile flocks of finches (all Linnet that I could see/hear). There was a surprise Greater Black-backed Gull, however, over towards Loch Fitty, which probably counts as a bonus bird.

Off to Dalbeath Marshes LNR and the Tit flock there produced LT Tits (6), Goldcrest and Treecreeper, before a trip to the hilltop and my intended new vismig spot produced flyby Geese and Swans - an auspicious start?
