calm after the storm

2 Sooty Shearwaters, a Little Gull and a Med Gull passed Whitburn Obs early morning.The Norherly is going and things have settled down to a nice easy pace. Conditions were very pleasant with full cloud and a nice grey sea
New Mark joined me today and i had to leave him in charge as work once more gets in the way. This is what we had in order of appearance
