Kilminning Coast Wildlife Reserve, near the Fife village of Crail, consists of a strip of coastland that attracts plenty of birdlife.
In summer, listen out for the stonechat which has a call like two pebbles being banged together, and look out for the white flowers of the scurvy-grass. In winter, many birds can still be seen on the reserve. Out to sea, cormorants and gannets often fly past. Closer to the shore, you may see the bobbing form of the male eider duck with its striking black and white plumage. On the shoreline itself, oystercatchers can frequently be seen feeding.
