Chobham Common - 5 Dec 2010

Back again for more punishment with Barnaby, Gavin and Sam from the ringing group. No easier to set up the second day running, just as wet and tiring trying to set nets up in a bog. Catch low again. Put on a Reed Bunting tape as there was a group of 10-20, and they flew off ??

Catch was:
Lesser Redpoll - 3
Blue Tit - 1
Coal Tit - 2
Reed Bunting - 1

Reed Buntuing - 3f

After packing up earlish at 12 we headed back home via Bracknell, just simply so we could miss seeing the Waxwings.

I dropped Denise off at home and headed off to the West London reservoirs to pick up some of this weekends birds. First stop was Wrasybury Res that produced 3 Great Northern Divers, single Red-necked and Slavonian Grebes, 5 Goosander and a Peregrine and then off to Queen Mary Res for the Black-throated Diver, returning home even more knackered.
