Summer breeze!..........

6 Arctic Skuas and 54 Manxies passed Whitburn Obs by 09.15 this morning. A northerly is blowing and it was chilly in the obs, i was joined late on by Pink Floyd who wished he'd brought his gloves. The birds were a little disappointing but maybe later today or tomorrow morning we might see a few more Skuas moving
This is what we saw in order of appearance
