Sunday best...

150 Pink Feet and a Velvet Scoter passed Whitburn Obs by 10.10 this morning. Boy Wonder joined me and we enjoyed a good mix of decent birds, a pair of smart Pintail were year ticks for both of us. In the good sharp light all of the ducks looked like they were in their Sunday best. This is what we saw in order of appearance
