6th, yes 6th of April and while out at the osprey site I heard a familiar chirrup and looked up, well it was only a swallow then a couple of others and a martin also staccato calling and feeding. They do use river valleys as migrating routes and the reedbeds for roosting, but the 6th of April ? in Fife? against a strong NWst wind. Next I'll find all the geese have gone!

    I was out on the 7th at a high point overlooking Newburgh and the upper Tay estuary, several individual pinkfeet skeins landed in a green sown field below me and eventually numbered more than 500, so geese are still around. Skylark singing too.
