East wind blows no good....

2 Bonxies and an Arctic Skua went north at Whitburn Obs this morning. The cream of the county's sea watchers were massed in the Obs today but to no avail. As the old sailors saying goes 'east wind blows no good'. Well it didn't today we worked hard but the pickings were slim
This is what we saw in order of appearance
