2055 - 2130hr
Weather and Sky:
A bright, clear and cloudless evening after a dull afternoon. Wind: SW F2. Temp: 12 dp 7. Visibility: clear. Cloud: very small amount of cirrus and thin stratus band to far NW 1ok total. Open sky and setting sun at 21:39. Pressure: steady rise all day, currently 1009.

Hoped to get out earlier this evening but in the end had to make do with some of the famous "back yard birding" sat out in the garden after a car wash. Lots of flies even here at home and House Martins buzzing over head. A few trees around in the gardens but the outlook is clear. Better than expected with my first Curlews of the autumn going high west, a group of Canadas going east and lots of Starlings going purposefully east, presumably to roost. Also a Wren in the garden which must have been a dispersing? bird as no Wrens breed within earshot of us here and we dont get many birds in the garden. No gulls, Swifts or Swallows at all. Must do this more often.

What do others get moving in the sky whilst out in their gardens? - try a new kind of garden watch!!
