Comments: Not much moving this morning although lots of local birds in the valley fields with corvids and B H Gulls making the most of the very wet fields after yesterdays continuous downpour. I thought we would be off to a good start after receiving news from the Oxenhope watchpoint with 2 Whoopers were heading our way at 07:40 but they were not located passing over Calderdale unfortunately - but thanks for the news from HC. Chaffs were all heading NW.
