n n nervous 90's........

5 Whimbrel were the stars of the show passed Whitburn this morning. and Sandwich Terns passed in three figures for the first time this year. I was joined as usual by Magic Mark and we had a great watch with lots of variation. Puffin and Whimbrel were new to my Obs year list which is now on 99. Wonder if we will get the ton up tomorrow. This is what we saw in order of appearance.
