NotesPartly cloudy, cold day with light winds and light snow cover. First time we've conducted a WRS and we had hoped for more sightings but we definitely enjoyed it. The route is very good, with 95% semi-rural/rural agricultural and wooded areas. Probably have better results with 1 or 2 more observers in the vehicle.
