Who stole all our ducks...

3 Black throated Divers and 3 Little auks passed Whitburn Obs by 10.30 this morning. Saint Mark was back from Borneo and Stoney was in the house.. We managed to find a bit of quality to make it more than just a typical winter watch. Seems to be a lot less ducks around this winter. This is what we saw in order of appearance
