Now thats what i call a good sea watch vol 2

Storm Petrel, 8 Bonxies and a Velvet Scoter went north past Whitburn Obs by 08.30. I was joined by Magic Mark and Stoney was in the house. It was northerly overnight and it was one of those sea watches you don't want to miss. This is what we saw in order of appearance
