Little Mix.....

5 Little Auks and 11 Little Gulls passed Whitburn Obs by 11 today. Hoggie joined me and he filled his boots with year ticks on his first watch this year. Conditions were similar to yesterday but without the rain. Little Auks and Gulls were the stars. This is what we saw in order of appearance
