It was a lovely calm and sunny morning in the Country Park today, but not so elsewhere. A thick fog bank covered the sea east of Firehills [pictured] and presumably the Dungeness Peninsula, a similar bank off Beachy Head gradually moved west. The horizon was also misty. This brought a halt to most visible migration, other than a flurry of House Martins and Swallows, which lingered over East Hill. Last week [Sept 24] there was a heavy passage of House Martins along the coast after early morning mist lifted.
