Sloppy Seconds.........

4 Pom Skuas and a Great northern Diver passed Whitburn Obs early morning. Disappointed that work got in the way of sea watching yesterday so i was determined to have a look see today. The only Auks i saw were Guillimots but Little Auks can be slow to get going. A few Skuas were moving but straight easterlies are not the best winds to watch on. Stevie Thunder arrived as i left for work so lets hope he gets a few decent birds. This is what i saw in order of appearance
