Happy Mondays.....

2 adult Little Gulls and a Great northern Diver went south past Whitburn Obs early morning .I nearly didn't bother and was struggling to get out of bed. The prospect of a westerly wind and bright sun wasn't motivating me. Add in the onset of post world cup traumatic stress.....
I was glad i did make it when those quality birds went south. This is what i saw in order of appearance
