Stanwell Moor - 30 August 2012

With the additional assistance of CDW and Richard Dwyer (Surrey Ringing report editor) the roost and flash were targeted. A small band of hirundines, c25, showed interest in the tapes and the birds had gone down before the flash nets were fully erected. A catch of three adult Sand Martin and six Swallow was taken.
Having packed up the roost nets we resumed at the flash but nothing had found the nets and even after a brief wait until what passes for dark in the glimmer from the motorway lighting we caught no more birds.

Totals : 9

Sand Martin - 3
Swallow - 6
