W F4, 11 degC, 1000 - 2000m, 8/8 low stratus, QNH 1021 rising.

Passage of front overnight and still in progress. Sky brighter with a static edge to the stratus to the east. Driving drizzle from the west alowing almost acceptable conditions on the embankment in the shelter behind the wall! Mipits were moving again today from first light with the biggest party = 11, nearly all were at the cloudbase level c 1400ft asl, all were going south. More Redwing than expected passed overhead, again all at cloudbase level or above and going west, only the ones seen were counted but there were quite a few "heard only" contacts. Reed Buntings were also on the move this morning all single birds and going west.

Moving birds in order of appearance:

Meadow Pipit 91 > S
Goldfinch 4 > S
Redwing 127 > W
Reed Bunting 6 > W


0900hr, an edge to the stratus out to the east (c) 2008
