Year list update...

Red necked Grebe and a Bonxie went south past Whitburn Obs by 10 am today. It was another flat calm day with little or no birds passing, plenty of Porpoise on view but my Glaucous Gulls have dried up for now.
In 2015 my January list ended on 78 and in 2016 a massive 86 so i was happy to add three new year ticks today to bring me onto a healthy 76. Yes Song Thrush,  Knot and Red necked Grebe kept me ticking over
This is what i saw in order of appearance
