Stormy Friday Sea Watch

2 Poms 2 Velvet Scoters and an adult Little Gull were amongst the birds that passed Whitburn Obs early morning. Magic Mark and myself were in position at first light to enjoy the stormy conditions and see what birds it produced. Numbers were low but we thoroughly enjoyed what we got which was mainly close inshore
This is sort of what we saw in order of appearance
