09/10 Greenham Common Western Enclosure

Location: Greenham Common, Western Enclosure
Session: 09-Oct-2018 07:40 to 11:00hrs
Headlines: Week 41, still a few Blackcap and Chiffchaff going through. Meadow Pipits not responding to song? Was a bit blowy at times which affected the capture a bit; missed a few tits. Audio attracted down two Pied Wagtails and might have attracted a couple of inquisitive Snipe who after flying low around the enclosure a few times, landed by the biggish puddle and disappeared into some low brambles. 
Weather: bright, sunny, clear, calm sometimes breezy, warm
Present: JL
Nets: 48metres in three rides of 18m, 18m, 12m up from 08:00 to 10:30hrs
Lure (audio): Redstart, Meadow Pipit, playlists: Autumn, BCCCFCGC shuffled intermittently.

Recaptures: none

Sightings 26 Species: probably missed a few species, no Stonechat found and just the one Goldfinch seen. The high-flying Herring Gulls probably the best birds; never thought I would be highlighting seeing “seagulls” back last century! Three Swallows fed for a while then flew north. At least three  double figure flocks of Jackdaw flying south and my first Siskin of the year flew over.
