Light migration, crappy radar

Migration was light last night, with some birds taking flight after sunset, and heading in a northeasterly direction. Scattered thunderstorms made their way across the region overnight, but not enough to cause any major fallouts (not enough birds, either). Unfortunately both radars went down overnight (only for a couple of hours) which adds enough difficulty to the animation process to make me give up for today. If it had been a large movement, I’d go through the extra effort. Looks like things are really winding down for the season… time to begin the breeding bird surveys out here in Somerset!

Good Birding
