Billy no mates......

A Blue Fulmar passed Whitburn Obs by 10 o clock this morning. The wind has moved round to the north but it brought little of note. Both Marks had deserted me but even they would have struggled to find anything today. Passage was brisk early on but it trailed off to a trickle by 8, i did well to last till 10 o clock hoping for my first Sandwich Tern of the year......maybe tomorrow
This is what i saw in order of appearance
