Norr Hill Wilsden 28-10-2007

0930 - 1030hr
W F5, 45km, 6/8 recent torrential rain ceasing and mist clearing, QNH 1009 falling.
Revert to GMT today. A late get up this morning due to a terrible forecast of torrential rain and strong winds. No point in going up to Oxenhope for a birdless soaking!! Plus an unclinched bunting sp (probable Snow) had been flushed with the Skylarks, seen poorly and heard on the Hill yesterday evening and it might still be hanging around. No vis species seen in the sky throughout the visit although grounded Skylarks had increased from 10 to 17 overnight!! and about nine Meadow Pipits were in the animal fields. The bunting was not seen again, most likely long gone.
Grounded Birds:
Skylark 17
Mipit 9
