Iceland Gull keeps up our fantastic White Wing year

An Iceland Gull went north past Whitburn Obs at 6 am this morning. On the first of my early morning weekday watches of the new season it was nice to get some quality. I'm losing count but i think that's the 11th Iceland Gull reported past the Obs this year. Sandwich Terns are back with a vengeance. This is what i saw in order of appearance
