Shear delight....

2 Roseate Terns and 2 Great northern Divers passed Whitburn Obs by 07.30 this morning. Magic Mark and Fos joined me in perfect sea watching conditions. A brisk northerly and full cloud cover greeted me as i sat down this morning, and my first bird a close was great to get some real movement of these special birds
Sadly its a work day for me today so i had to leave early, this is what we saw in order of appearance
