Oxenhope 21-10-2008

CuNim on Approach at Sunrise!.... looking NW (c) 2008

CuNim overhead..... Hail and Sleet! (c) 2008

Oxenhope, Bradford, W Yorkshire.
0750 - 0945hr DB/HC
W F5 gusting F7, 5degC falling 4, Hail, sleet and rain showers, 20km, 5/8 CuNim, QNH 1002 rising quickly 1005.

An unsuitable morning both for the vis and for us trying to watch it! Many heavy hail, sleet and rain squalls frequently with us and only shelter behind the wall allowed us to carry on, although what for, I dont know! As expected hardly any birds on the move and as Nick says "what a difference a couple of days make"!

Moving birds in order of appearance;

Wood Pigeon 18 > E
Chaffinch 8 > S
Goldfinch 8 > S
Starling 12 > W
Peregrine 1 > SW
Meadow Pipit 1 > SW
Skylark 5 > W


Many squalls passing (c) 2008
