Broadwater - 15 November 2013

It was some time since out last visit to the site and we found that a couple of trees had come down in the storm of a fortnight ago. Fortunately, the places where nets are usually sited were not affected. We set a double and four single nets, then tried a variety of different recordings to encourage birds to the nets.
We had a modest catch but were pleased to get a single redpoll, if only of the Lesser variety. There were also a Magpie, a couple of Chiffchaff and some Goldcrest. One Goldcrest retrap, EJJ827, was a retrap from the Hilfield site.
