Sunday 22 July 2012
Counting period: 7:15-12:45
Weather: wind West4, visibility 65000m, temperature 13 ℃, Sky always more open to the west and south 7ok becoming 4ok. Rain showers visible for long periods, tracking SE.
Observers: Dave Barker

Moving Birds:
Oystercatcher - 14
Swift 4 -

Swallow 3 -
Lesser Black-backed Gull - 89
Grey Wagtail 1 -

Totals: 153 individuals, 6 species, 5:30 hours

Comments: An east / west divide with Lancashire sunshine but dismal over Yorkshire. Better conditions gradually spreading east and north. The very few Swifts that were in evidence were going west, Gulls as usual going both S and NW. Grey Wag SW. Both Greenfinch and Goldfinch frequently in the skies but most likely travel food related so discounted. All in all a poor morning, not improving with the conditions.
