Beaconsfield Motorway Services - 8 February 2013

We decided to try the services again, as the wind wasn't too strong, and were joined by LH who hoped to gain her first experience of Pied Wagtails. As we pulled into the car park it didn't look good as there was an awful lot of  activity, added to the arctic, in the coach park, across 50% of the area where we needed to site the double 60'. We set up knowing that conditions were not ideal and even 'though we managed to keep vehicles away from the nets (including the two nice Muslim gentlemen who agreed to move for prayers) we were only able to catch nine birds although two were our first retraps.
