After the Lord Mayor's Show

21 Little Auks and a Great northern Diver passed Whitburn Obs in 3 hours this morning. Magic Mark joined me and Stoney was in the house but it was always going to be a bit quiet on a south westerly after yesterdays northerly blast. We still did ok tho, of interest one of the Whooper Swans that went north was Kinky, a swan we saw last year with a kinky neck.
No records today but this is what we did see in order of appearance
