Dippedy doo dah......

Great northern Diver and 6 Black tailed Godwits passed Whitburn Obs by 09.30 today. Yesterday Hoggie rang me about a Little Egret on the nature reserve pool, an obs year tick. I rang Harperbirder who lives nearby and needed it but he said the bird was gone so i didnt go for it. Sadly i was relaxing and had a couple of beers only for the bird to turn up later, and yes it was seen from the obs. Oh well another day another dip.
This is what i did see in order of appearance
