Oxenhope... little activity! 11-04-2010

Dawn to the North West... (c) 2010

Looking WNW.... (c) 2010

E F1 rising E F3, 5degC, 6000m haze becoming 200m fog then 20km, 6/8, QNH 1032 falling.

0600 - 1130hr

Conditions looked ok initially but obviously not right and deteriorating as virtually nothing was in the sky.... except for a flock of 24 Linnets W..... then at 0720 the fogs rolled in from the east and this put paid to any action until 0855 when clearance again from the east advanced. Skies still empty so a trip to the Spring watchpoint was in order to see if things were any better.... still nothing doing so back round and then home early.

Moving Birds:
Meadow Pipit 20 > N
Goldfinch 1 > W
Linnet 25 > W
