Comments: Gulls not counted, ideallic out but only indifferent migration with no good counts of anything. Visibility initially very good but by 1020hr deep haze and fog stratus was invading over the high moor from Lancashire taking the edge off the day. Thrushes, no migration, Starlings gone right down, pinks moving east today and could have been good but wernt although a large skein coming low right overhead was exciting. Hardly a bird in the sky during the last few hours!
