Predictions:
Friday: Cloudy. High 21C. Winds NE at 15-30km/h. Expect light to moderate
migration. Could be a nice osprey push.

Saturday: Sunny. High 27C. Winds NW at 15-25km/h. Expect light to moderate
migration. Overall good conditions but still early and blue skies will make
spotting birds more difficult.

light to moderate migration.
