Spring is in the air.......

A Blue Fulmar went north past Whitburn early morning, a nice dark DD bird, you cant beat DD.Spring arrived in the form of my first singing Chiffchaff of the year at the Obs. It was misty when i first arrived but overall visibility wasn't bad but by the time i left the fog Had rolled in. This had a positive effect when 3 Fieldfare went over clucking, another new Obs year tick bringing the total to 87. This is what i saw on my short watch
