04/10 Greenham Common

Location: Greenham Common Western Enclosure
Session: 04-Oct-2017 07:30 to 10:30hrs
Headlines: At the tail end of summer migration so fewer warblers about and Goldcrest today the most captured species. One or two resident species were on the move, overall though a fairly quiet session.
The matching 2016 visit contrasts in that a good number of Chiffchaffs still being captured and just one Goldcrest. Also, Redwings captured whereas so far this year apart from one or two over-flying Siskin and Redpoll there is little sign of any winter migrants.
Weather: Overcast cool, light breeze early, brightening up, calmer and warmer mid-session becoming overcast cooler a breezy towards the end of the session.
Present: JL, IW, RJC
Nets: 48metres in three rides of 18M, 18M, 12M up from 08:00 to 10:00hrs
Lure (audio): Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Goldcrest, Firecrest, Yellow-browed Warbler, Siskin, Redpoll and Meadow Pipit intermittently.
