If i had a Hammer.....

Iceland Gull went north at Whitburn Obs on this mornings sea watch but little else of note. The mass surge of birds from a couple of days ago has gone and both Marks joined me for a leisurely Saturday sea watch. Star bird was a Yellowhammer that Saint Mark found in the hedge by the Obs, a true Mega, well done Mark
This is what we saw in order of appearance
