Comments: A deteriorating morning in all respects. Conditions against it from the start thus few of the few birds moving, up here today. Three small sqadrons of Starlings passed at intervals during the morning all travelling NW. A handful of Common Gulls passed west, a LBB Gull south and just four "long lost" Fieldfares east.... and that was it.
