Comments: Had a couple of hrs this a.m. (09.00 to 11.00) after ceasation of rain. Pretty quiet, but most notable was a SE movement of Lapwings - 5 at the start and 44 at 10.45. Both groups picked up coming over from Keighley Moor direction, then high SE, till out of sight. Just 5 Swifts high ESE. Also unusually a high Willow Warbler came in from NE and out towards the clough.
