Sunday 7th

Headed out to the hilltop above Dalbeath Marsh LNR in the morning for a spot of vismigging, with the following results (7:25-8:25):

Greylag Goose - 2 alba wagtail sp. - 1
Anser sp. - 4 Goldfinch - 3
Woodpigeon - 8 Siskin - 1
Meadow Pipit - 6

Interesting to see that from the top of the hill, when not disturbed by human presence, there were 7 Moorhens visible on the pond. SEVEN! If I'm lucky from the pond side I have seen 2. Chances are it could be a real increase, but it looked a lot like 3 pairs plus a spare, or four pairs? Time will tell.

It was a pretty grey morning, with visibility less than 20km. There also seemed to be a lot of Blackbirds around compared to normal (cf. Inverkeithing next day, when this was also true). Greylags were new for the square, and brought up the half-century.
