Wraysbury GP - 20 July 2015

A last minute check of the weather on Sunday night indicated that the forecast for the end of the week was changing, and there had been an about turn so that Monday now seemed to be the calmest day, plus overcast.

We couldn't start early due to a commitment at 7.30am, but after that we headed to Wraysbury. By this time it was drizzling and we only put up four nets. Thankfully we were spared too much running around closing nets as the only time we closed was to clear extracted birds. Not bad all in all, 4 nets (and only two of those were full 60s), 3 and half hours and 92 birds.
