Mainly about the wild flowers of Fife

January waves

Beautiful sunshine with a keen wind which meant bird-watching was kept to the minimum. And flowers were few and far between. Instead, today was all about the waves, blowing onshore in the breeze.

Two windsurfers were heading to the water, having some trouble with their sails. Butterfly men.

It was too cold to stay and watch them, but later I got a glimpse through the binoculars. Brave men.

After collecting a small moss sample from Ruddon’s point, I walked along Shell Bay with the wind behind me and the waves lively and sparkling in the light.

The walk along the foot of the cliffs was difficult, with sun in my eyes and that wind, but the sight of the waves crashing on the rocks was well worth it.

Felt I’d earned my lunch. And saw a kestrel hovering on the way home.
