Whiter shade of pale..........

A 2nd winter Iceland Gull went south past Whitburn Obs at 06.25 this morning. I am doing an early morning watch most days now but have had nothing to blog about since a Med Gull on the 12th. On one day this week i had no divers or ducks, so its hard work but it wont be long before the terns and puffins are back and I'm doing a daily view from the obs
this is what i saw this morning in order of appearance
