Glauc City......

Glaucous Gull and Black throated Diver passed Whitburn Obs in 3 hours this morning. I was joined by Magic Mark and we enjoyed the ruff sea and good light. Not many birds about but our gull checking paid off when i called my 6th Glauc of the month, Glauc City indeed
This is what we saw in order of appearance
