Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May...

Blue Fulmar and a Manxie passed Whitburn Obs by 09.30 today.In dreadful conditions i managed a four hour watch this morning.Shakespeare wasn't kidding when he said rough winds do shake the darling buds of May
This is what Saint Mark and myself saw in order of appearance
Surely it will be more like May tomorrow
