Just a word of caution for Friday and Saturday, there are high winds and yellow weather warnings for rain.  On Friday Wind Gusts of 56 mph are forecast and on Saturday Gusts are over 40 mph.  
Risks:  The Wind gusts at over 30 mph which make it difficult for pedestrians to walk.  Gusts over 40 and 50 mph make driving conditions a challenge, especially for high sided vehicles.  Risk of rain and showers all day and into the evening.  Wintry conditions on high ground and perhaps some snow.  Floods on roads:  Inverkeithing near roundabouts and near Inverkeithing High School.  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.
