Little and Large

10 Little Gulls,5 Arctic Skuas and 18 Red throated Divers passed Whitburn Obs by 10.15. It was nearly a case of little and large after the10 Little Gulls a large corvid was circling high up very distant, was it a Raven, we couldn't nail it. Not quite up to yesterdays standards but another nice watch with just Mark and myself and a brief visit from Pink Floyd before he left to look at a Lap bunt
