Pinks on the move....

Black throated Diver and Red-necked Grebe passed Whitburn Obs by 10 o'clock this morning. The crab sandwich boys arrived but alas after all the good birds had gone , hope they get a consolation bird
It was bust straight away and i heard the Pinks before i saw them nice way to start the day, i expect more to be heading off soon
This is what i saw in order of appearance
