Dalgety Bay - Rainy, rainy rain came down

Finally after a month of sunshine (unbelievably) the rian is coming down and it's very pleasant. Woke up early this morning, not by design, but I made the most of it by doing a good recce of the woods to Braefoot Point, recording easy pickings while scoping future chances of shingly shore, maybe a rock pool or two, proper coastal rocky lichens and a bit of pinewood. All looks very promising. No way this will be all for today but it's a decent start to a rainy day.

Oh! And a #patchgold Whimbrel on the shore. I had in mind Wheatear but Whimbrel will do nicely.
