sloppy seconds......

4 Great northern 1 black throated and 21 Red throated Divers passed Whitburn Obs by 10am today. The northerly has gone and we were left with sloppy seconds but it was still a canny sea watch. New Mark joined me (late as usual) and Hggie at the death
This is what we saw in order of appearance
