after the storm.........

3 Great northern Divers, a Long tailed Duck and a Velvet Scoter passed Whitburn Obs in 3 hours this morning
The big blow through the week didn't quite live up to expectations it didn't come round from the north for us
magic mark, stoney and myself turned up hoping for some after storm movement
This is what we saw in order of appearance
