Shag fest....

Iceland Gull went south passed Whitburn Obs today keeping up our recent run of white wingers. Stoney was in the house and the only other highlight apart from the Shags was a small bird going south with a wing bar that may have landed on the sea......but not confirmed sadly
It was brass monkeys and we headed off early
This is what we saw in order of appearance
