Comments: Typical easterly conditions here... poor! Closed sky in and out of cloudbase with just a few crepuscular rays and little improvement in visibility for a long while. Mipit congregations continuing to build with several large flocks up down and moving around. Swallows west and mipits starting to inch south.
