Coming up roses.....

2 Roseate Terns went south past Whitburn Obs early morning. At last my first Rosy's of the year on an otherwise difficult morning for sea watching. A blasting westerly and bright sun does not make for ideal conditions and bird numbers were well down
This is what i did manage to see in order of appearance
