Like Buses..............

2 Marsh Harriers and a Pom Skua went south past Whitburn Obs this morning. Saint Mark joined me for a wonderful sunrise that i tweeted @pablohugelist. You wait all year for a Marsh Harrier on your Obs list then 2 come in an hour, just like buses. Both cream crown birds and both circa 1 mile out. One of the Harriers was mobbed by a Pom.....
A few more migrants were showing than yesterday and Redstart outside the Obs was nice
This is what we saw in order of appearance
