Happy New Year.....

Black throated Diver and 2 Bonxies passed Whitburn Obs by 11am on our first sea watch of the year.
It was a bit quiet but the light was right and a northerly blowing, i was joined by Magic and Saint Mark, Boy Wonder and Hoggie and Walter bringing up the rear as usual.
We are hoping for better things tomorrow, this is what we saw in order of appearance
