It's It's a Bioblitz......

Great northern Diver and 2 Roseate Terns passed Whitburn Obs by 9 o'clock this morning. Not long now till the bioblitz, it starts at 18.00 on Saturday for 24 hours so get yourself along to Whitburn and help the National Trust to record as many species as possible. The Obs crowd will be doing its best to contribute .

Stoney was in the house today and i needed his help as i was struggling on my own to record near and distant birds. We had another great northerly sea watch and the 37th Great northern Diver of the year
This is what we saw in order of appearance
