After a gloomy start (weather-wise) fine conditions picked up too late for any real vis-mig. In the morning, 3 Short-eared Owls around mid-soar including one perched in Melodious Lane. Otherwise 13 Ring Ouzels (all but one in Stare Hole), 2 Whichats, 35 Siskins, 6 Wheatear, and a Merlin.

An afternoon thrash of Saw Mill and West Soar produced....nowt!
