Oxenhope.... fog stratus!! 2011-09-09

Got a couple of early hours in this morning for the first time this season.06.10 - 08.30 hrs.

SW F3 gusting F4, fog stratus and heavy penetrating drizzle.

An excellent passage of mips was evident though actual volume indeterminable due to our old adversary fog stratus preventing good lateral vision. Mips recorded below were those actually seen directly overhead the watchpoint. Many were also heard but not seen in the low stratus. The passage however was on a broad front as on odd occasions when visibility improved for short periods, moving birds were scoped to the east and west.

Mipits - 318  S & SE
Swallow - 12 SE
Sand Martin - 2 S
Siskin - 2 S
Redpoll - 2 S
Wheatear - 4 moving through south in stages
Goldfinch - 2 SE
Linnet - 2 SE
Chaffinch - 3 high E

Skylark - 1 SE
