Warbler what Warbler

Little Gull and 10 Red Throated Divers passed Whitburn Obs early morning. After the excitement of the Myrtle Warbler it was business as usual today. My first sea watch since my excellent Thailand birding holiday. I was joined by Pink Floyd on a quiet morning and this is what we saw in order of appearance
