Oxenhope Watchpoint 15-04-2007

0700 - 1000hrs DCB / HC / JS.
SW F1, 6 > 22degC, 20km, 1/8, 1023 steady.

A continuation of the almost none existant mipit vis with only a single bird seen flying north - not for the want of looking at all levels either as the birds just were not there! However Swallows saved the day with 15 seen spaced well throughout the morning and still comming at an ever increasing rate at 1000hrs when it was time to go! A note of interest from Saturday 14th April 2007 (0915am) is that HC had good views of a Hobby flying and continuing NE at Fly Flatts, just over the hill and to the west of us here.
