Mipits on the move

A rapidly deteriorating day when the bright sunny start turned to cloudy skies with an increasing WSW>5.
Meadow Pipits were the bird of the day with a steady flow >N from first light until just after midday when all went quiet. The mips came over in twos and threes with a total of what I saw of c50 with a couple of Skylarks in with them. I think that by the weekend the moors will be up to near enough full strength with them.
Fly Flatts on Sunday had several established birds, several of which were displaying doing their parachuting act.
Otherwise things were quiet, it seems strange walking in a gull less Foxhill park at midday.
