Vis-mig this morning- very quiet!

Got up early this morning to do some vis-migging before my late shift at the General.
Reaching Deans Lane at around 7.20am I noticed that the visibility was shite and you could only see about a mile distance in all directions!
So over the two hours I was at Deans Lane, the highlight of the morning was a flock of 14 Crossbills in the nearby conifers just after 7.30am.
Other sightings over included 630 Starlings, 248 Redwings, 4 Fieldfares, 156 Wood Pigeons, 39 Chaffinches, 19 Siskins, 8 Redpoll Sp, 12 Meadow Pipits, 13 Skylarks, 13 Finch Sp, 1 Stock Dove, 1 Blackbird, 2 Yellowhammers and 1 Grey Heron migrating South-West.
As the weather looks pants for the weekend, strong winds and rain showers I will probably spent a bit more time in bed this weekend?
