More postbreeding arrivals and butterflies

Beautiful sunny morning this morning saw butterflies out in force - especially Meadow Brown. On the birdy front Inverkeithing saw my first returning Redshanks, a scattering of Lapwing, and a Sandwich Tern, the latter two of which are both year additions for me, bringing Inverkeithing up to 94 species, or 75% of target.

Also this morning saw Birdtrack records for the year go over 7500.
