All quiet on the Whitburn front....

Adult Med Gull and 4 Little Gulls were the best past the Obs this morning on a very quiet day. Lots of Gulls were moving south with a good count of Black headed but sadly the Farnes have nicked our Little Gulls. Only Saint Mark made it in and this is what we saw in order of appearance
