Loony tunes......

Black throated Diver and 3 Velvet Scoters passed Whitburn Obs by 10.00 this morning. From the start of the watch Common Scoter were heading north, 3 Velvets went through close in as well but no Surfer...yet. Star bird was a moulting adult Black throated Diver supported by some nice close Red throats some calling/singing
