29 July 2015 1015 Bowling alley. Geddes back at the Bowling alley so birds have moved further up the shore line. But Med gull can be found with a good search. Quite a few Sandwich Terns among the gulls.

On the scrape today at the top of the Lurgies 1 Green Sandpiper, scared away so not texted. Also, 1 Kingfisher, 5 Mergansers, 1 Greenshank, 3 Snipe, 9 Common Sandpipers, 2 Canada Geese, 23 Greylag Geese, 1 Sparrowhawk and flock of around 150 Lapwings.

At Scurdie Ness, a steady stream of Gannets north, Common and Sandwich Terns, 15 Velvet Scoter south and a surprise Purple Sandpiper which may have been one of four.
