Stanwell Moor GP - 17th October 2016

We wanted a morning out after a busy weekend that included two long car journeys to and from Hull. We didnt want an early start, but were up at 7.00am, only to find that a heavy shower was passing through. Once it had cleared we drove to Stanwell and quickly put up four nets between the river and lake.
It is unclear whether it was purely down to the wind, or due to low flying aircraft taking off, every 90 seconds, directly above us, but we only got ten birds - mostly Long-tailed Tits.
