Migration Magic.......

42 Whooper Swans and 95 Pink feet went north past Whitburn Obs by 11am this morning. Saint Mark and Pink Floyd joined me and Stoney was in the house. We were looking for some migration action and we certainly got it with the Whoopers and Pinks. This is what we saw in order of appearance
