Gannets, passing not fishing

My last Corn Bunting survey today and to walk the stiffness out of my legs I went down to Scurdie Ness and sat on the rocks hoping something would fly by. The Gannets below were flying north and coming out of the sun so are all back-lit and with the exposure turned up in the camera. There were a few Sandwich Terns fishing offshore but no Common Terns today. A few Ringed Plover and returning Dunlin also made an appearance.
