I'm Back!!!!.....

A drake Long-tailed Duck and 3 Bottlenose Dolphins passed Whitburn Obs by 10.30 today. Magic and Saint Mark joined me today along with Boy Wonder and Skinny Dipper. Youngsters these days have no patience so when i heard the whinges about not much happening i said give it time, and lo and behold...
Yes our first Bottlenose Dolphins went north showing occasionally in good light, remember Freddy?
Sadly we could not get the aptly named Skinny Dipper on the Dolphins
This is what we saw in order of appearance
