Stanwell Moor ringing site - 1 September 2010

A visit this evening with Gavin for the roost was as it unfortunately turned out, a rather negative evening with hardly any birds gathering pre-roost with only one Sand Martin being caught, with 2 Sedge Warblers, a Blackcap, 2 Willow Warblers and 2 Chiff-chaffs, plus 2 re-traps.

Nets for roost

The last two evening visits as we left a group of about 15/20 waders have been flushed from a flooded area, so tonight an attempt was made to catch them. Tonight, there were none where we wanted them.

Just an impression how low the aircraft going over into and out of Heathrow can get.
