Marazion Marsh - 22 August 2013

We had been warned to expect a tractor at 9am to cut extra viewing rides so knew that there would be some disruption to our usual routine. As it happened, the tractor arrived early and we had to take down the dogleg double pannel from the junkas as well as our own 30ft net before 8.40am.

The catching still went fairly well although species were limited and we continued until 1pm before packing in.

The afternoon was spent at Nanquidno where we located two Pied Flycatchers and photographed some rather splendid insects and plants.
