Monday April 1st 2013 0900hrs - 1030hrs
Now off out up Hutton Roof to check the position today, will report back later.
I had a late skein of "Pink Feet" going over the West side of Hutton Roof. The only thing beside this were three Meadow Pipits fighting side on Easterley winds and heading back South. Checked out all HR West Side for Warblers including: Lancelot and Burton Fell, but certainly none making there presence known.
Tuesday and Wednesday April 2nd and 3rd 2013 (0900hrs - 1030hrs) both days
(Tuesday) Small numbers of Mipits going through North but have increased on recent days to perhaps 50 per hour. Also 4 Pied Wagtails heading out East.
(Wednesday) Still strong bitterly cold North Easterlies coming over the Roof, but Mipit numbers have took a dive yet again with only about 10 birds seen over a hour. Also a couple of Siskin heading North and Wagtails. Also the first day I have noticed birds back on territory with the odd Mipit flying up and parachuting down everytime a bird went closeby to the Trig Point.
Thursday April 4th 2013. (0900-1100hrs)
Mipit passage over Dalton was down to maybe down to 5 birds per hour, even gone back on yesterday, but again much colder today with the biting North Easterlies. Also reliably informed that about 50 Mipits where being held up further down near Dalton Hall, obviously blogging and waiting for their moment to recommence their migration North. Again odd Siskin moving over Dalton.
Friday April 5th 2013 (0900-1030hrs)
Mipits going through but only about 10 per hour. Again freezing cold heavy North Easterlies.
