A forecast for low wind today encouraged us to give Chobham Common a try for Dartford Warbler. It was a real struggle as the common was enveloped in thick fog and the dull, cold conditions were not condusive to tempting birds to show themselves or even call much. Despite the difficult conditions we managed to capture a young female with BP1.
