Broadwater GP - 16th December 2016

This visit would probably be the last of the year and we were on site with nets up before the Redwings began to move about. In addition, the new feeders have been up for a few days and all the food was gone when we arrived

We had  three nets in the area where Redwings roost and one of the ten nets was placed close to the remaining feeder. We also had the usual run of nets along the track.

As we've come to expect from this site, most of the Redwings did not fly about much before leaving the site, but we did catch a few. There seemed to be little else about other that a few tits and the feeders must have been emptied by squirrels since the area really didn't attract any birds all morning.
