Comments: GREENWICH MEAN TIME STARTS TODAY...Weather : Brilliant early morning sunrise gave way to overcast conditions though decent visibility was maintained - Oxenhope Sentry always in view. Very windy with driving drizzle at times.....DIRE TODAY....Simply nowt apart from a measly 15 Starlings NW which were literally bouncing very low over the in-bye as they tried to make headway in the gusty wind conditions. Drew stumps at 0900 hrs , as per Dave, everyone else was suffering the same fate as me this morning.
