The usual suspects......

Blue Fulmar passed Whitburn Obs by 10 o'clock this morning. I was joined by Boy Wonder, Pink Floyd and Skinny Dipper. After yesterdays westerly i was hoping today's easterly would bring some new birds but it was just the usual suspects. The wind and rain in our faces meant a shortish watch, we enjoyed the start of the annual Shelduck movement and the close Kittiwakes. This is what we saw in order of appearance
