Contrail vis this Evening... 15-05-2010

Euro Atlantic Airlines.... (c) 2010

Pakistan International Airlines.... The Silk Route... (c) 2010

Opening skies into the sinking sun together with a few minutes to spare were interesting... not much moving but the air was cool and stable offering long range possibilities.


Oxenhope... thank goodness for lessers! 15-05-2010

Lessers still on the move... (c) 2010
WNW F3, 6degC, 65km, 1/8 increasing 7/8, QNH 1014 rising
0700 - 1100hr
A split watch today with the first 1/2 at the "spring"... although virtually empty skies initially. Later the lessers started to pass along with a few Swifts and interestingly a mipit or two but that was it up here.
Moving birds:
Lesser black backed Gull 49 > N
Swift 6 > N
