Cullaloe first to 80%

At dusk last night a Snipe feeding beside the pond took Cullaloe to 80 species, and made it the first of three patches to reach 80% of target. Bit dark and distant for photos though.

Inverkeithing this morning had its first autumn Tree Pipit over, along with a handful of Swallows, a couple of Woodpigeon and a Curlew. A Common Sand also flew past west but probably had arrived locally overnight. A few Cormorants flying into the area this morning too - 10'ish maybe.

Since there was nothing photographic this morning here's something from last night. Cullaloe filter beds with Water Plantain, Water Mint and Water Forget-me-not, Great Willowherb, and my favourite one - Branched Bur-reed with its globular inflorescences. I swear I also saw a Newt slither away through the grasses never to be seen again.
