something in the air

3 Great northern Divers, 2 Med Gulls and a Bonxie passed Whitburn by 11.05. Good conditions with cloud cover helped make it an enjoyable watch. I was joined by magic mark stevie thunder and the babysiter. Stevie lived up to his name having had a curry last night, you could hear the distant rumble and as thunderclap newman sang....'something in the air', it wasn't pleasant
Its not every day you see 3 great northerns i was happy
Here's what we saw in order of appearance
