Enough!

... with the Easterlies. OK, so thanks for the Grey Phalarope and all but Holy-mother-of-god please stop!

Half hour at Cullaloe this morning saw Feral Pigeon bring up the 60 at last. Still no Chiffs or Sand Martin for me, but a handful of northbound travellers - Mipit (7), Oyc, Curlew, and some probably local breeding Greylags again. Some LBB and Herring Gulls also may fit into that category, but it's hard to know what the Gulls are doing.

Onto Inverkeithing, then, where the wind is worse because there's no shelter. Out on the coastal path is nigh on unbearable and the harbour had little to offer either. There were a similar handful of Mipits and maybe a finch or two (Gold, Green, Linnet), but again hard to tell.

At least all my patches have clocked up the 60% now. Hopefully by the end of the month I'll be looking at more like 70.

Cullaloe Greylags

Nice weather effect (with bonus unidentified migrants!)

Northbound Curlew

Hound Point - yes, no birds
