Broad Wings have slowed down (hopefully not for long) but our best
Sharp-Shin day of the season yet with 233 tallied today. 3 Peregrine
Falcons were a nice treat too. It looks like the wind will stay Southerly
for the next two days but hopefully more Broad-Wings are still up north and
will make their way down here at the beginning of next week.
