Subject: [JERSEYBI] Before lunch Garret
Hi, I thought as it was before a good looking Saturday for migration I
should give you guys a little info. The park is looking terrible and I
suspect almost all Migrants will now move on each day, as there are few
tangles to keep them.
I suspect tomorrow could be good with a forecast of 80*s.
This the morning list at the top with, added a few after lunch below
Thanks Bill Elrick Wyckoff
