Observation start time: 11:00:00 Observation end time: 16:15:00 Total observation time: 5.25 hours
Official Counter: Lewis Grove
Weather: A mix of sun and clouds, with a few strong rain showers sweeping over the ridge at times. Pretty incredible day for cloud-watching, as each set of showers looked like the end of the world was coming. Very strong winds started roughly SSW but were variably gusting from the SW to N by the afternoon. Temperature ranged from 16C - 23C.
Raptor Observations: Afternoon winds may have been too variable to sustain a flight; the only birds I had were moving between the showers.
Predictions: Clear and warm with light WNW winds; should be some birds moving. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Lewis Grove (<zugunlew...>) Tussey Mountain information may be found at: http://www.tusseymountainspringhawkwatch.org/
