Welcome to the house of fun....

Manx Shearwater and Long tailed Duck passed Whitburn Obs by 10am this morning. I was joined by Saint Mark, Boy Wonder and Pink Floyd and boy did we have some fun. Our first Manxie of the year and our first Common Tern, a big Diver and much more. Add to that a variety of wind directions.....
