First day on the platform(FULMAR ALPHA) and what a start to my trip,apart from the usual gulls and fulmars first bird today was a Whitethroat followed by a juvenile Starling,then as I walked back to the job after lunch a bird flashed by,turned into the wind and played in the air currents within 20 metres,a superbly conditioned Hobby,first for me offshore and so close.Pat
