Comments: Little initially with drizzle developing with low cloudbase, but soon improving before falling off again with heavy rain, then sky clearing suddenly from the SW. SEO very high east mid am was the most interesing bird. A large wader coming rapidly W, turning sharp SW and away remained unidentified.
