On the third day of Christmas Santa sent to me........

5 Velvet Scoter, Long tailed Duck and a Santa's sack full of quality birds passed Whitburn Obs by 11am. Magic Mark beat me in and had an Arctic Skua for his reward, we were joined by Stevie Makem and a welcome return to the Obs by Boy Wonder (RA). Santa sent us loads of birds, this is what we saw in order of appearance
