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!
