Bridled Tern Vigil

Its fantastic news that a Bridled Tern was found on the Farnes, my hope is that at some point it will fly past Whitburn Obs and i will be watching at the time
Mark Newsome joined me this morning and we had early disappointment with the news the bird was still on Inner Farne
Once again the mornings highlight was the Scoter passage
