It was quiet but better thasn watching Brazil

A blue Fulmar and an Arctic Skua went north past Whitburn Obs by 07.30 this morning. It was quiet despite the northerly wind even the Terns slept in, the Sandwich Terns didnt get going till well into my watch. Sadly no mouse for company today, this is what i saw in order of appearance
