Oxenhope.... impossible! 12-11-2010
Friday 12 November 2010
Counting period: 8:30-9:45
Weather: W F6 gusting F9, 8degC, 65km, 5/8 variable with heavy shower, QNH 985 rising 986
Observers: Dave Barker
Starling - 6
Totals: 6 individuals, 1 species, 1:15 hours
Comments: Broken with heavy showers throughout, wind from a W qtr with QNH rising 986 by c1000 then steady. Just an hour at the low watchpoint better than yesterday but only just and even a struggle to open the car door... Far far too windy for birds over the tops even at the low watchpoint with only six Starlings seen NW in the shelter of the valley... perhaps they are still moving but lower down?
