Lttle and Large

3 Red necked Grebes 259 Little Gulls a Great n Diver and a Marsh Harrier passed Whitburn Obs this morning. I was joined by Saint Mark and Stoney was in the house (CW,SMc,BS later). Magic Mark was away but i needn't have worried my wing men were on top form. Little Gulls dominated again but poor light made it very difficult to pick a Sabs out, maybe tomorrow. A Marsh Harrier south completed the little and large feel. This is what we Saw in order of appearance
