Norr Hill 12-08-2007

0830 - 1130hrs with time out between 0930 and 1030 for exceptionally heavy rain.... the walls up here arnt adequate for shelter so got absolutely saturated!!
SW F3, 5/8 to 8/8, rain as above but otherwise dry 25km
A fall of Willow Warblers in the new scrub and hedges around the hill amounted to at least 20 birds calling or seen during the first part of the watch before the rain, also a Redstart heard and then seen. Just a few Swallows (13) moving > SW before the downpour and maybe more would have been seen if it haddent have been for the Willow Warblers as I diddnt reach the summit untill after the rain. After the rain most of the Swallows had vanished leaving the sky clear dark and empty but the sun was soon out again before more showers. Apart from the warblers a poor morning.
Willow Warbler 20+
Redstart 1
Swallow c25 > SW
