On site 06.10 hrs till 09.00 hrs. Very calm and murky conditions. Res was like a mill pond.
Initially, very little sign of vis-mig, then at 07.10 hrs mipits started to appear, much higher than usual - only calls gave me any chance of picking up the actual birds. Most mips went South, with others going West and a small minority going East. Largest flock was 30.
One Swallow flock of 26 birds South was picked up at extreme height whilst scanning the grey skies for mips.
Vis mig quietened off significantly at 08.15 hrs.
