Not great but better than I expected. 79 birds; 31 Coops and 26  Sharpies. 
Wind was from the NE when I got there at 6:45 and blowing a good #1.  At the 
stroke of 10 it changed very suddenly to the east and over a couple of  
hours got very strong, up to #5, enough that when it gusted it was hard to hold 
 bins and stand steady.  Had a trickle of birds from 10 to about 1:30, and  
then only 1 Coop till 2:30, when I left.
For a change, great cloud cover most of the day made it easier  to find 
what we did have. High thin stuff that made it really bright. 3  RT's playing 
in the park that never went. 2 Peregrine Falcons, One Merlin and  one Am 
Kestrel, 2 Bald Eagles, 4 Northern harriers.
