Ducks in the mist...

2 Arctic Terns and a good selection of ducks were the best i could do in the fog and mist at Whitburn Obs this morning. The ducks were often high up and mixed flocks but visability was poor and impossible at times.The Doc called in and i left Hoggie in charge, i may go back later to fight off the Yellow browed's
