Sooty saves the day

Sooty Shearwater 2 Great northern and 2 Black throated Divers passed Whitburn Obs by 10.30 today. It was a little disappointing i expected more wildfowl movement in a nice northerly flow but little was passing and yes the Sooty was the star of the show. The passage of Divers continues and it will be interesting to see the months totals
Pink Floyd and Hoggie were in today and this is what we saw in order of appearance
