0700 – 1000hr. (DCB, JS, CK)
Weather and Sky:
A very windy morning with slight showers and always more cloudy to the west. WNW F5 gusting F7 (note as always wind speeds as on the embankment, somewhat less lower down), 8 deg C, 60km (E), stratus breaking stratocumulus 4ok, 1006 rising 1009hPa

Again Greenfinch the strongest movers with small flocks often testing and then continuing south, otherwise only a very few finches on the move. A small group of 23 Redwing passed south at 0820hr and this was the only evidence of their return today. Mipits had a better day but yet again more birds went west than south.
