Obs year list update

Velvet Scoter, Little Gull and 14 Red th Divers passed Whitburn Obs by 10am this morning. It was a very quiet sea watch, magic Mark must have had a premonition he was at work, new Mark was in and wished he hadn't bothered. My Obs year list was on 51 after the Glaucous Gull mid week and even on a poor day i managed to add another couple with Mallard and Reed Bunting...53 and counting
This is what we saw in order of appearance
Here's hoping for better tomorrow
