Weekend 13-16th July

Took a quick trip up to Tentsmuir on a sunny day on Saturday. Interesting experience pushing a baby buggy on soft sand! Not much of interest there birdwise - a Ringed Plover on the tideline. Hoped for butterflies out of reach (and maybe too early) with buggy issues, but also a strong wind would have kept them down maybe. I did find loads of Cinnebar moth caterpillars destroying the Ragwort there though. Little Lee also enjoyed his first walk on the sand. Earlier in the day an hour around Dalbeath Marsh LNR produced lots of House Martin and Swift feeding in a cloud over the tops. Managed a drop in to Letham Pools yesterday, but apart from an increase in Lapwings, and a couple of Dunlin and Common Sandpiper I didn't see anything of note.Still adding a wildflower to my vocabulary here and there, and still struggling with the Apiacea (Umbelliferae).
