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. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Vic Laubach (<laubach...>) Rockfish Gap Hawk Watch information may be found at: http://www.rockfishgaphawkwatch.org
