Chobham Common - 17 November 2013

We were joined by TA and JHH and arrived at the ringing site in semi-darkness due to heavy cloud cover. We erected three doubles and began playing for Redpoll before adding a final double panel for Dartford Warbler.

It turned out to be one of those sessions that remains in the memory for all the wrong reasons. There were no large numbers of Redpoll and the odd ones and twos that came to investigate the audiolure would not be tempted down to the nets.

There were good numbers of Fieldfare and Redwing passing overhead throughout the morning but this didn't boost the capture total. We finished early with just two birds on the record sheet.
