Show me the honey mummy......

a Little Egret and a Peregrine passed Whitburn by 9am this morning. It was a quieter day with a stiff westerly and bright sun to start making viewing difficult. Northumberland had a Honey Buzzard go west can i have one please. Star bird was the Little Egret which landed in the nature reserve, not sure if it hung about. Pink Floyd came in late on
This is what i saw in order of appearance
