Common as muck

60 Arctic Terns 2 Little Terns and 3 Whimbrel were the highlights passed Whitburn Obs this morning. The first three species i saw were Common Scoter, Common Gull and Common Tern........ it was that sort of day the conditions were fine but lacked some wind. I was joined by Magic Mark, New Mark and Stevie Thunder and this is what we managed to see until i left a little early to go hunting Wood Warblers
