it is now......

Great northern Diver passed Whitburn by 10.30 this morning. I didn't expect much in a blasting westerly and i was right. Pink Floyd joined me late on and we didn't see much, a bit of vis mig kept the interest up but birds were scarce. Its my last sea watch for a while as next weekend I'm off to do some birding in Goa with magic mark
This is what we saw in order of appearance
