Quality Street

Roseate Tern, 2 Sooty Shearwaters and 2 Velvet Scoters passed Whitburn Obs this morning
It was a quiet start to the morning with little passing but it built to a climax of birds and Dolphins by the time i had to leave for work. Sadly i couldn't linger due to a heavy schedule today, how many more Rosy's would pass, the Dolphins were showing........damn damn damn
