Herald in a Rosy.....

3 species of Diver and a Blue Fulmar passed Whitburn Obs by 10 o'clock this morning. Saint and Magic Mark were back , and Stevie Thunder made his monthly appearance. I had put my moth trap on last night and the only catch was a Herald, i was hoping it would herald in a new obs year tick we all still need Roseate Tern but not today.
