on the beach

I've just been to the beach with Bridie, its a wild wild evening, with roads and bridges closed to high siders and motorbikes (how will my brother get back to Fife from Edinburgh?  He rides a bike..).  On the beach over the past few days of lovely weather there have been colonies of terns, oystercatchers galore, a few twite and lots of sanderlings, that I think breed there.     Tonight..nothing.  No birds apart from a handful of the huge scary gulls.  So, I wonder where they go?  And why?  Is it the weather, do they have a hang out for different wind directions???

Next post about the drama of last week and Bridie..theft on the beach!
