Thank you Preston.

It was great to come down to Preston yesterday evening to speak at the Preston Society on the subject of "Visible Bird Migration" over Hutton Roof. I got some fantastic feedback afterwards and would like to say just how "warming" the audience was... Thank you Stephen et al.

(0600-0700hrs) Early light frost this morning, and the "dawn chorus" was just as strong as ever with the Blackbird taking the lead. Never heard any "Chiffchaffs" or other new Warblers this morning as yet.

(0830-0930hrs) Just returned from Dalton Crags and Hutton Roof and the Chiffchaff near to Plain Quarry is singing away, but other than that very little. I had one Redwing calling and going East, but the Meadow Pipits were only trickling through at about 20 per hour.

(1400-1500hrs) Also Chiffchaffs singing at Arnbarrow (Sandside) and another one at Truckhaven Services, just behind Shop.
