Pallas's stops Shagfest....

7 Littls Gulls and a Bonxie passed Whitburn Obs by 10am this morning. Hoggie joined me (early for him) and he helped me see very little. He did explain to me at length why yesterdays OBP could only have been a tree pipit
He received a phone call and off we dashed to see the Pallas's Warbler in Sunderland , we arrived just as it showed well briefly
This is what we saw in order of appearance
