Dalgety Bay roundabouts near Aldi’s and Tesco. Routes to Aberdour and Kirkcaldy have known flood risks too. it is fascinating, that the flood spots are known, but they appear repeatedly and the issue is not being resolved. The authorities seem to ignore the local floods.

That is it from me and have a trouble-free Thursday. The birds are quiet, but I hear an occasional tweet of joy. It as if a droplet of moisture, Adam’s ale has dropped into their little mouths. And the excitement explodes with an almost twitter storm of tweets within our family of Aves. It is as if their thirst is quenched with nature’s very own spring from heaven.
