Access is now cut off to the whole of the prom. These two photos are from early March showing more drilling out of the old sea wall and the stumps of the metal supporting struts that strengthened it. Not to mention a demolished lamp standard.

Latest phase of work. Drilling out the old wall on the north part of the Prom. Taken 19/2/14.
This second one was today. Top mostly drilled out.

This is the result of the drilling through the concrete groyne I posted about on 10/12/13. They drilled through two of the groynes, presumably to allow JCB/lorry access all the way along the beach. There doesn’t seem to have been much more work done in January since I took this on Jan 6th.

The rig has been off Kirkcaldy for about a week now. I can’t find out anything about it on the net beyond its presence.
Does anybody know if there’s an oil rig location website similar to ais.com, which is for ships?

Two herons at the edge of the island in the pond of Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy. I’ve only ever seen one of them at the one time before.
There were curlews in the park too. They’re not there as often as oystercatchers, though. There must be a lot of food for them. Taken from distance to avoid disturbing them.

I haven’t posted any photos of the works at Kirkcaldy Prom recently. Either the wind has been too high and we didn’t fancy a walk along the prom or the tide has been in when we’ve been down there.
These are from about a month ago when they were moving rocks along the sea front.
Truck moving north along sea shore.
Returning truck with bow-wave.
View of works.

New sea wall; photo taken by poking the camera through a fence:- Taken on November 27th
A gap in the new sea wall. I presume there will be access to the shore from here when it’s all done:-

The new sea wall looking north:-
Trench digging, presumably to provide better seating for the stones:-
Pneumatic drilling to demolish an old concrete groyne:-
Drilling again – from other side of groyne. Nice clouds of dust!:-

This was in Kirkcaldy High Street on November 9th. I think it might have been a Rolls Royce, but I’m no expert on cars.

Perched on an overhanging bough just off the island on 2/11/13.

Looking uphill. Almost no part of the path through the park was uncovered by leaves here.
From higher up the path looking back downhill:-
More of the swans. Leaves well on the turn behind:-
