This evening noteable for westerly mipit movement as they do at this time of year... becoming prominent later in the visit and the 31 counted were mostly in quite a short time as I was prepering to leave. Moving in diffuse groups. If I had been able to stay longer I am sure the mipit count would have been much greater.
