Here Kitty Kitty......

2 Glaucous Gulls and a Bonxie passed Whitburn Obs by 10.30 this morning. Both Marks and Stevie Thunder joined me on the stormiest day of the year so far. The first Glauc went by as we were sitting down with hail in our faces. The sea was spectacular the birds in truth were a little down on what was hoped for but Kittiwakes and Fulmars made up for the lack of ducks
This is what we saw in order of appearance
