Its raining Gulls, hallelujah....

Black throated Diver and 6 Little Gulls went south past Whitburn Obs this morning. Magic Mark joined me and we hoped to get a few birds before the rain came. Thank goodness for the Little Gulls in the last hour as it was quiet in the rain. Stoney was in the house. This is what we saw in order of appearance
