everthings gonna be all white

Glaucous Gull, 2 Med Gulls and a Peregrine passed Whitburn Obs by 10 am this morning
Magic Mark had predicted a white wing gull fest and he wasn't wrong with juv Glaucous Gull and 2 adult Med Gulls passing, otherwise it was quiet in a strong westerly although i did manage 3 new Obs year ticks with Dunlin, Peregrine and Greylag. We were joined by new Mark and Pink Floyd and this is what we saw in order of appearance
