Oxenhope co-ordinated watch

Been talking to Howard this morning and we are going to try a co-ordianated Oxenhope visible migration watch over the weekend if conditions are suitable to see which of our two watchpoints is getting the most birds.

From the charts, conditions on Friday still dont look as if they are going to be any better to me but Saturday and Sunday when we will be out both look ok for us so long as the showers arnt too long and to heavy! Maybe even a bit too flat and calm??Monday looks a bit doubtful now, but it is a long way off.

Any B.O.Group member wanting to join in at either watchpoint or anyone wanting watch elsewhere please mail me if you can, or post a comment.

Wonder if Andy, John (Washburn / Sandwith) and Martyn (Raw Nook) will be out? If the mipits and swallows are on their way it might be a good opertunity to compare.

As the time gets nearer, watch the charts to get the best weather indication.
