    Comments: 10:30-10:40: We caught sight of a flight of moderately high 22 Broad-wings, then another two fairly low, and we looked up. It reminded me of an old black and white movie about the bombing raids on Germany that took off from England--wave after wave of planes in loose formation. Way, way up was a massive flight of BWHAs heading due south. I began counting, got to 50 and used that spacial-sized block to count the rest. I came up with 1,200 and think that may be a conservative number. We had two more low, working to find a thermal to catch up with the main force high above and disappearing into the gray sky, for a total of 1,228.
