Wasted sleep

Heysham Obs
A classic early morning waste of time as a barrier of murk to the south blocked all migration bar a faint dribble of Meadow Pipit.  A few started to move as it gradually cleared.

Office vis
Meadow Pipit - 59 north in 3 hours (8 ringed)
alba Wagtail - 6 north
Goldfinch - 3 north

North wall
vis not worth writing down!
Shelduck - pair hovering offshore (eyeing up the rabbit burrows on the mound)
Twite - just 10
Linnet - 3
Purple Sandpiper - 2
