mip - finch interface!... 2011-09-29

 Sunrise.....(c) 2011
Yet more sour milk!!..... (c) 2011

S F2/3, 0ok, 13degC 13km, QNH 1022 rising 1023

To me, the most significant thing today were several migratory calls of a skylark (s) passing overhead at home in total blackness whilst stacking the car at c0600... confirming to me that this species can migrate by both night and day.... never actually heard them passing at night before! The mip finch interface today, with finches becoming dramatically prominent in the count.... yet more "sour milk" in the sky reduced visibility and bird detection substantially... but nevertheless a good morning with lots of "october" spirit in the sky.
