Comes in threes........

2 Little Gulls and a Great northern Diver passed Whitburn Obs by 10.30 this morning. They say good things come in threes, well today we saw three good species of bird which was three more than we saw yesterday. Both Marks were in and we had an unexpected visit by Boy Wonder. This is what we saw in order of appearance.
