White wing central...

Glaucous Gull and 2 Long-tailed Ducks went south at Whitburn Obs on our short watch this morning. Stoney was in the house and we had a canny couple of hours but when the rain got heavier we abandoned ship. The Glaucous Gull went south very low down and nearly evaded my bins but we nailed it, many more whitw wingers will follow this winter. I didn't manage to video the the Glauc but i did video this Vermilion Flycatcher in Ecuador last week, hope you enjoy it
This is what we saw in order of appearance
