Broadwater GP - 17 August 2016

Another windy day as we continue monitoring this site every other day. MRB and BC covered the session on the 15th and captured 57 birds, down on the numbers we've been getting lately.  Today we captured even fewer birds. There were birds around, but it was cold early on and the birds were mostly high up in the warmth of the sun. There were several completely birdless rounds.

After the clearance made to the site by the fishing club, we have made up some notices to try to keep people out of the new rides that we've had to cut. We can but hope as a new fixed guy put in only last week had been burnt through and rendered useless.

There will be no coverage on Friday as we'll all be at the BirdFair!
