23/07 Thatcham Marsh LNR visit 2017.09

Location: Thatcham Marsh LNR CES visits 17.09
Session: visit 09 23-Jul-2017 05:30to 111:00hrs
Headlines: I was away for this visit.
The Reserve lock on a gate had been tampered with and fell apart causing a delayed start. Despite trying to insure that leaving fishermen did not lock the gate, it was found to be locked when trying to leave. The bailiff had to attend with a Reserve officer to release the ringers!
A poor capture: 27 is below the average of 45 for visit 09; range 2013-24 1998-87.
Last year’s matching visit had more variety but fewer Reed Warblers. 
Weather: slight breeze, sunny periods
Present: IW, DL, JHW, JPM
Nets: 198metres in one standard net ride up from 06:20 to 10:hrs; no additional nets.
Lure (none):
