Start Point

06:00-11:30, Lighthouse, Mattiscombe Valley, Start Farm, Down Valley.

Clear starry skies when i turned in at midnight, rain and 100% cloud cover by dawn with a light-moderate south-east wind. Apparent promising conditions for Start Point but something missing because in reality not a lot around.
