Observers:

Weather:
Rockfish Gap fogged in most of morning, beginning to clear at 10:15am. Fog
slowly and constantly blowing in from the east, filling the gap entirely.
It finally lifted for the most part to east and west, but it never lifted
overhead. 27.8-26.2C temp. Mild E breeze. Very poor visibility. Dark grey
clouds and rain moved in just after noon.

Raptor Observations:
Managed to squeeze out one Osprey out to the west flying due south at very
low altitude.

Non-raptor Observations:
2 Monarchs, 8 hummingbirds, 112 Chimney Swifts, 24 Barn Swallows. Lots of
dragonflies.
