The usual suspects.....

Black throated Diver flew north past Whitburn Obs by 10.30 today. Stoney was in the house and we did our best in dreek conditions with little wind. It was a case of the usual birds going past till we managed a bit of quality with a Black throated Diver flew high north with a flock of seven Red throats
Watch this space with Velvet Scoter we are very close to a new Obs record....
