Swan Song

8 Whooper Swans and a Med Gull passed Whitburn Obs by 10am today. Magic Mark was back and brought a change of luck to the Obs after yesterdays feeble totals. As the Whooper Swans flew majestically north he said he could hear them singing. toady's watch was still a bit quiet but we had a couple of quality moments. This is what we saw in order of appearance
