Daydream Believer.............

2 Arctic Skuas 2 Med Gulls and a Blue Fulmar passed Whitburn Obs by 7am this morning. Good light and a nice mix of birds made for an enjoyable watch. No cetaceans on my watch today. As i was leaving another watcher arrived he asked what i had seen and said he had come down to see Pom Skua and Sooty Shearwaters. I wished him good luck and thought dream on mate, dream on
This is what i saw in order of appearance
