2 Roseate Terns and an Arctic Skua went south past Whitburn Obs by 08.30 this morning. Conditions were nice with good light and a calm sea but bird movement was quiet i felt myself asking like Sir Bob, is that it.
Interestingly the Rosy Terns passed at exactly the same time as yesterday. Although i had nowhere better to be it wasn't busy enough to keep me at the Obs, maybe tomorrow....
