----------------------------------------------------------------------

Observation start time: 10:00:00 
Observation end   time: 12:00:00 
Total observation time: 2 hours

Official Counter:        Mac McAlpine

Observers:        

Visitors:
None reported.


Weather:
Sunny and hot with light winds from the N early but shifting round to the S
and SSE. Temp to a high of 27 today and even higher with the humidex.

Raptor Observations:
Despite the not so perfect migration weather... (I know it was a beautiful
day for everyone BUT a hawkwatcher!) the birds did move and the total for
day was 1,102. The bulk of today's flight was Broadwings (1,087) along with
a couple each of Osprey and N. Harriers, a lone Bald Eagle, Sharpies (6),
A. Kestrels (3) and a single Merlin.

Non-raptor Observations:
None reported.

Predictions:
With a forecast of total blue skies and still quite warm on S winds I'm not
expecting there to be much of a flight for tomorrow... though the
Broadwings are obviosuly moving through but likely not as far down as the
lakeshore.
