Dalbeath Marsh LNR

Beautiful morning in the Kingdom of Fife. Dalbeath marsh LNR returned 24 species, including Lesser Redpoll - new for my reserve list, and another GBB north, this time on it's own. Not much Herring Gull movement this morning but there was what seems to be a usual flow of Woodpigeon NW (c.120 this morning). Tufties reached a new high of 10 despite partially frozen water. I remember February to be the peak month at Cullaloe too in previous years. Be interesteing to rake over those old records from yesteryear.

Also some finches going north quite high - a few Chaffinch and Greenfinch - local movement or genuine movers? Not the first time or place I've seen this Greenfnch movement north in the start of February.

A couple of roe Deer pranced about amongst the newly planted trees - the farmer will not be happy!

Run Bambi, run!

Not the best pic, but you get the idea

Master of all he surveys

Will they really be able to breed here I wonder

Tufties reach double figures
