Saturday 16th July 2005
1530 – 1650hr
Weather and Sky:
An improving day with a cloudless afternoon after a mainly overcast morning. Wind: W F5. Temp: 18 dp 11. Visibility: Ingleborough / Drax, both very hazy max. Cloud: translucent cirrostratus only, otherwise 0ok. Pressure: steady 1017.

A short stay late in the afternoon – inadequate! Wind just that little bit too strong, with more Swifts feeding in the area than moving. More gulls were on the move than apparent close in, but generally a poor afternoon. Linnets (c25 earlier in week) seemingly gone with the grass – now mown.

Moving birds:
Swift 27 > W
Lesser black backed Gull 15 > NW
Black headed Gull 21 > NW
Herring Gull 1 > NW
Goldfinch 5 > W
