The early bird catches.....

Glaucous Gull and 21 Whooper Swans passed Whitburn Obs by 9am. I was only in the Obs for a short sea watch this morning as i had to visit my granddaughter Abigail in hospital, she is doing well. Both Marks were back and Stoney was in the house. It was same again please as good early passage of Whoopers and Pinks made it interesting and the Glauc fly past was breathtaking. Not sure what else the guys had after i left but I've got no complaints my early start paid off. This is what we saw in order of appearance
