Nervous 90's....

2 Bottlenose Dolphins went south passed Whitburn Obs, thanks to @elliottatchev for the heads up.I had to leave early on some family taxi business and just managed to fit them into my busy schedule. How did i manage when i worked.  The birds were less exciting and my Obs year list has limped onto 99 so a bit more passage would be useful. In recent days I've added Stock Dove, Grey Wag and Grey Partridge. It would be nice to get an early Sandwich Tern or Sand Martin this week...
This is what i saw in order of appearance
