When the winds in the east the fish bite........

Velvet Scoter and Med Gull passed Whitburn Obs by 10 o'clock this morning. The easterly continued but with even less to write about than yesterday, both Marks could not even muster an obs year tick for me so the ton up will have to wait till next weekend
