Bingo! Ringo....

A Ring Ouzal was on the firing range at Whitburn this morning my first ever from the Obs. It flew east towards Jackies Beach as i was leaving. Swallow was also new for me today bringing my Obs year list to 112. It was just as well the Ringo turned up as there was little of interest out to sea. In the last three days ive had northerly, easterly and now westerly winds, what will tomorrow bring
This is what i saw in order of appearance
