Mines a double......

2 Iceland Gulls passed Whitburn Obs by 10.45 this morning. Stoney was in the house and we hoped for a third which would give us a new day passage record but it wasnt to be. I was back from a short birding break in Goa and loving the rough conditions but the birds forgot to show
This is what we saw in order of appearance
