The good stuff just out of range....or missed!

A murky start but the sun came out late morning, then shone for the rest of the day.  Breeze light mainly from the west.

The title refers to a White Stork to the south of the recording area at Cockerham, we were hoping for a fly ove, but it didn't happen today - perhaps tomorrow.
What apparently did fly over, likely very high, was a Spoonbill c10:50. Unfortunately not reported from anyone in the recording area.
