Oxenhope... after the rain! 01-06-2010

Blackbird in song... (c) 2010
ESE F2, 13degC, 15km, 8/8 drizzle, after moderate rain all day, QNH 1017 rising
A very wet day in the hills but now dry up to 1915hr when heavy drizzle started. All of the local birds very vocal and exceedingly active taking advantage of the improved weather before dusk. A virtual stoppage of lessers tonight, without doubt weather related.... but interestingly a couple of Blackheads in the megre mix of passage species.
Moving birds:
Lesser black backed Gull 10 > NW
Black headed Gull 2 > NW
Cuckoo calling.
