Like winter in July.....

Arctic Skua and a Bonxie passed Whitburn Obs by 10.30 this morning. I waited in the car for a while this morning before braving the conditions to walk to the Obs in the rain, so it was a late start. Magic Mark did the brolly walk with me and later Saint Mark. Bomb the Bass were right its like winter in July.
This is what we saw in order of appearance
