More high pressure, more fog .Bring on the frost.

        Corporal Hill watch point midday, looking over Shibden
                                                   Fogged out
                                   West over the valley of fog
                   Black Dyke Mills in the cloud
                                   Queensbury upper school

Again this morning ,as soon as daylight came so did the fog scuppering any chances of vis mig
which could have been interesting with several local reports of Redwings moving into the area.
Also a decent day for wildfowl with good counts of Teal and Wigeon, unfortunately no time to check Ogden tonight before dark.
An attempted lunchtime watch from Corporal Hill was also hampered with fog clouds swirling round the area.

Having said that, fog is nothing new to vis migging as the 1999 photos below from Oxenhope show.
