Whoopers lead migration charge....

37 Whoopers and 85 Pink feet went south past Whitburn Obs this morning. I joined Magic Mark after sleeping in and immediately called 8 Whoopers south,  and it was migration all the way with Grey Wagtail south calling as i left.
Long tailed tit, Coal tit, Great Spot, Mistle and Song Thrush, these are scarce birds from the Obs. Long tailed Tit was a year tick. Sadly no Crossbill yet for me
