Visitors:
Thanks to Tom B and Ken for doing today's count.

Weather:
Moderate to strong W gusty winds today. Cold to start at -2C and temps were
steady getting to just -1C. Very few clouds in the morning but cloud cover
building in by noon.

Raptor Observations:
A fairly small flight today which isn't surprising given the fairly stiff W
winds which are headwinds for any raptors trying to make their way westward
along Lake Erie. Total birds today was just 83 with a single N Goshawk in
the first hour and small numbers of other species during the count with
Redtails (49) accounting for the bulk of the flight.

Non-raptor Observations:
None reported.
