The wind of change..........

A Long tailed Duck went south past Whitburn Obs by 09.30. I had to leave early on Grandad taxi business. Glaucous Gull was predicted and i still need it....juv Iceland passed at 10.15 phew!.
Yes northerlies at this time of year don't produce a lot, its forecast for north westerly tomorrow lets hope a change in the wind direction shakes things up. The usual crowd were in and this is what we saw in order of appearance
