Fergie time....

Roseate Tern and Bonxie north were the best of a mixed bunch passed Whitburn Obs this morning. The Obs was full with the usual bunch but Boy Wonder and Stoney left early. We all hoped for a class bird in Fergie time but we didn't make them pay,  this time.....
This is what we saw in order of appearance
