Overcast with steady mist to start, lifting just after 9:00 and quickly becoming sunny/clear for the duration. Wind WNW 5-15. Major mixed species flight quickly built just after 9:00 corresponding with the clearing, peaking at a sustained combined 1000-2000/birds minute from 9:15-9:40 followed by gradually diminishing but still impressive movement, dropping further to minimal numbers after 11:00. Everything moving south.
