A still, murky and overcast start this morning with light rain off and on. The weather looked good for a passage wader or tern, although in the event the early rain and cloud only 'grounded' 2 new Wheatears with 1M/1F near Foxcote Farm (SLC/CR). All of yesterday's birds had moved on overnight. Also 2 raven flew over at Wassell Grove Pools.
