There's a moose in the hoose

Great northern Diver and an Arctic Skua went north past Whitburn Obs early morning. A field mouse was my only companion this morning and we had a busy watch. Good to see another Minke Whale was recorded north past the obs yesterday by the late shift
This is what we saw in order of appearance
