More from the 1999 vis mig archives .

With a fog bound start this morning  lasting until 0845 hrs and dark at 1900 hrs this evening a daily bloggers life is not an easy one. The blue clear skies were void of birds over Foxhill at lunch time so just to fill in, a few more pics from the Oxenhope watch point around Sept, Oct, 1999.


                     Howard Creber and myself during coffee break.

   Dedicated Sherpa Barker near the end of vis mig season.
Not a rock on the horizon but DCBs ghostly head
            waiting for the light.

All is not lost yet, looking through my records for 4/10/2001 teens of thousands of Meadow Pipits over the area.
My notes from work read " I,ve never experienced as many birds over in my life".  Lets hope it happens again.

Good times eh? Bri.
One whopping scope there as well - I'd need a step ladder to see through that one!

Was it Brian Englis who hosted all our yesterday's? Definitely a Brian anyway.

Good luck tomorrow.

Haha that'd be funny to watch John and you'd probs need more than a step-ladder mate.

Better luck tomoz Bri.
