So close...

A seawatch from Whitburn without the wind and rain made a change. The sea was flat, but the visibility wasn't great, with general murkiness. An unlucky Woodcock almost made it across the North Sea only to ditch into the sea, just 200m from shore. After lying in the water, it managed to take off and fly a few feet, only to drop back into the sea and eventually succumbed to the Great Black-backed Gulls.
