Sightings (21): Difficult to see any but the closes birds in the fog. The Rook was just a shadow in the murk but fortunately was calling, there might have been others. Stonechat and Dartford not detected until the end of the session when the fog had cleared to bright sunshine. The Small Tortoiseshell was sunning itself on the gravel, flying up in front of the car as I left.
