Amongst the gulls swimming off Lower Largo Pier, I noticed a duck which I hadn't seen before in this area. Unfortunately, I didn't have my binoculars but I took a photo and zoomed in once I got it on to the computer. Identified it as a shelduck. The gulls were mostly black headed gulls, in winter plumage, and a juvenile herring gull.

Spotted this redwing feeding on cotoneaster berries in a neighbour's garden in Lundin Links. Not a very good photo but can just see the red area under the wing and the prominent off-white stripe above the eye.
In our own garden lots of goldfinches feeding on the nyger seeds, also long-tailed tits feeding on the peanuts as well as blue tits, great tits, chaffinches, dunnocks, robins, blackbirds, thrushes.
