Unrecorded Meteor shower ?

Having been out observing quite a bit over the past 2 weeks, including an Astrocamp where a few of us slept out on our swags.
This was particularly evident last Saturday night the 28th of June
I have noticed a preponderance of Meteors from the region of Sagittarius ?
They had a common radiant over the course of the evening at a rate of perhaps 5 or 6 /hr

Does anyone have a possible meteor stream that this may be associated with ?

Hi Ian, 28/06 was completely clouded over here in Sydney. Most of meteors lately Iím capturing are coming from Anti-Helion area. Included image plots captured meteors from 30/06 to 06/07. Camera orientation is azimuth 338 deg, elevation 48.5 deg. with FOW 43.5 deg.

Hi Karl
That is a very interesting plot you have there !
Is that all from Video ?
I have just learnt a thing or 2 about sporadic meteor radiants too

Thanks for the insight into this aspect of meteor activity.
