Visible Migration Thr 4th October 2012 Hutton Roof.
0700 to 0900hrs
Wind: W3mph
Movement South unless stated.

Again very slow today, probably on account of the early mist, which at first was clear although the bottom of the valleys on either side where under thick Mist which eventually came up to the Hutton Roof summit and just killed it off.

Been out later (1230hrs to1500hrs) for a walk up to Trig Point, and there were odd parties of Mipits and Chaffinch going through, and also they where going in a South direction down at the bottom as though coming from the Farleton, Curwen Wood to Dalton Areas.
