15/10 Greenham Common

Location: Greenham Common Estovers Feeder
Session: 15-Oct-2017 07:30 to 11:40hrs
Headlines: an early visit to the Feeders at Eastovers (616) to check net locations, guys set up etc. A better than expected capture remembering last winter’s poor captures here. A relatively good capture of Greenfinch, Blue Tit and Great Tit, also three Marsh Tits is better than usual. Two Blackcaps, a Chiffchaff and six Goldcrests shows that there are still one or two migrants on the move. We probably missed out by not playing Redwing song though. 
Weather: very breezy, cloudy, warm
Present: JL, JHW, IW, JPM, GB
Nets: 68metres, three rides of 10m, 12m, 12m, around feeders, three rides of 12m, 10m,12m in scrub up from 08:00 to 11:00hrs
Lures (Feeders): Black Sunflower, Peanut, Black Sunflower, Nyger
