Things can only get better.......

A 1st winter Little Gull went south past Whitburn Obs today. For the third day in a row we were it was a poor watch, missing headline birds. No large Divers or quality ducks and my obs year list is becalmed, things can only get...... This is what i did manage today in order of appearance and the weekends sightings were similar to today.
