Obs Mega steals the show

Arctic Skua and a Bonxie passed Whitburn Obs by 7.30 this morning. And Magic Mark was back and called the Obs mega, an Avocet north only the second ever record. Stoney was in the house as he was with me when the first ever Avocet passed. It was a great sea watch but i had to leave the guys and head to work, always dangerous, this is what we saw in order of appearance
