Tystie, very Tystie

37 Little Gulls and 30 Red th Divers passed Whitburn Obs this morning but the star bird was a Black Guillemot. Magic Mark was in and he was at his best calling the bird as it went south close in then 6 minutes later calling it as it went back north giving good prolonged views. Very Tystie indeed
On a quieter day for birds than yesterday this is what we saw in order of appearance
