NE F1, 15degC, vis 2km haze, 0/8, QNH 1016 falling

Swifts and Swallows both on the move north throughout the morning high in the sky. Incomplete counts today as photographic opertunities too good to miss! Visibility was very poor despite the open skies as haze gave a whiteout horizon.

Swift 574 >N
Swallow 251 > N
Dunlin 6
Ringed Plover 1
Wheatear 2


Dunlin.... close in! (c) 2008
