Observation start time: 08:00:00
Observation end time: 16:00:00
Total observation time: 8 hours

Official Counter: Ken Klapper

Observers: Betsy Chadwick, Dorie & Tom Heig, Harold Janeway,
Robert Vallieres

Visitors:
One hundred and thirty-one, including visitors from Houston, Chattanooga,
Orlando, several Granite State locales (Northland, Manchester, Henniker,
Webster, and a cross-country team from Concord HS), and Saskatchewan.


Weather:
Cool to mild, and sunny. Light ENE breeze. Temps from about 50F to 60F.

Raptor Observations:
A nice push of TVs, especially in the last hour. Less sharpies than
yesterday, and only one falcon, a Kestrel.

Non-raptor Observations:
No waterfowl moving except for a group of ducks seen for about a quarter of
a second. No time for a walk today. Only six monarchs.

Predictions:
Light southeast breeze, picking up a smidge in the afternoon. Maybe some
morning movement. Let's hope for a few clouds, the blue skies today were
beautiful to some, but painful to raptor counters.
