Cullaloe steps up

Dropped into Cullaloe at lunchtime and on arrival noticed a flock of c.100 Lapwing flying over the reserve. Half of them went eastwards and half west, eventually settling on a feld beside the reserve. The field across the road was in the process of being ploughed, but they looked to prefer the pasture anyway. Gulls on the other hand were happy to be in the ploughed field and the first LBB of the year flew over the reserve from the group.These two new additions prompted a list update which also uncovered the absence of previously seen Little Grebe (also present today) and Greenfinch (yesterday), both of which will probably breed in any case.

So +4 for Cullaloe takes the total to a semi-respectable 54, and 54% of target. Remarkably, this is the exact same percentage that inverkeithing is sitting on:

Lapwings at last

Pretty gull - they actually feel "common" at the moment

Wigeon flight

These two characters still hanging out with the Tufties

I'm no expert, but I'm thinking Mink scat
