Good old Blighty......

A Black throated Diver was on the sea off the Obs as we finished a canny sea watch. Saint Mark was with me and we saw lots tho it did quieten down by 8 0,clock
Ringlets were on the wing, Swifts and House Martins swooping overhead, the Aussies are on the rack and that Scotsman is out in the tennis, and my Moth trap runneth over, good old blighty indeed
This is what we saw in order of appearance
