Caldene Fields Watchpoint

 

8th of October 07  Watch  07.00 – 8.00am

Weather:  A damp morning with fine drizzle and a F1 E/N/E wind. 100% heavy low cloud with visibility down to1 mile.  Temp 8c

 

Comments: A very poor morning hampered by bad viewing conditions. Although given there was slight easterly wind few calls were heard and very few birds seen.  5 alba wagtails moving N/E was unusual for this site.

 

Black Headed Gull > 9S + 3 E total 12

Wood Pigeon > 1E

Alba Wagtail > 1 S + 5 N/E total 6

Redwing > 13 S/W  + 16 N/E

Hi Darrell
Yes I see no reason why vis should not use your area. If the M62 uses this pass over the Pennines then some birds must also! You need a watch point with an elevated overview so you can get a good all round appreciation as to what is using the sky, both low and high. I will watch your web with interest as well as look on the map.
Dave.
