Meadow Pipit Alert 11-03-2007

First larger influx to the hills here in West Yorks this morning with 49 > NW throughout the morning (0720 - 1000hrs). Threes and Five being the biggest groups. Most but not all using the shelter of the embankment to move and all struggling greatly when cutting into the W F6 wind. Note that only c20km to the east sky much clearer and wind light and variable!!
