With no sign of the Pallid Swift this morning I headed down to Whitburn Obs. Spending more time out than in, with warm sunshine it was a pleasant couple of hours. Highlights were 3 Lapland Bunting, 2 Little Gull and a Mediterranean Gull. About 300 Pink-footed Geese flew south, but no sign of the Snow Goose.
News of a Swift at Marsden had me back north, but it drifted off before I got there. An hour or so scanning produced nothing more than 4 Buzzard and a distant flock of 80 Pink-footed Geese. A Chiffchaff moved through the scrub.
