OBP stops play

2 Whooper Swans 54 Pink feet and 26 Red throated Divers passed Whitburn Obs by 10.45. The sea watch was interrupted for a while when i went to see Olive backed Pipit in the hand, great work by Adrian and the ringing team. I was joined briefly by new Mark and Stewy McClain.Not a lot was passing but after the Pipit it didn't matter
