Caldene Fields Watchpoint 21-11-2008

Caldene Fields Watch Point, South Bradford

Whoopers at last !!!!

21st November 08 Watch 07.15 – 08.30
Weather: A dry morning with 60% thin high cloud cover clearer to the S/E and a F3 with gust to 4 W/N/W wind. After dawn there were brighter periods as the sun tried to break through the cloud cover. Very good visibility to beyond 11 miles.

Comments: A very good morning for me today not because of any movements but because of a single party of Whooper swans which flew S/S/E at 07.55hr. They were first picked up over the Birkenshaw area and moved out of sight to the E of Emley Moor Mast. Within the party was a single dark noticeably smaller Goose Sp
