Wraysbury C6 - 18th &19th December 2016

18 December

Again it was another foggy day and with Chris, Lara and Waheed still slightly lagging after yesterdays run over to Pitsea, with few birds around, and also what was present were moving around little, we decided to wrap up at 10.30am with just four birds processed.

Total: 4

Robin - 1
Redwing - 3

19 December

So having been at C4 on the previous day and done really poorly with just 4 birds ringed, we had seen large flocks of finches and thrushes on our way out so returned to C6 to try our luck.

Of course, things are never the same the next day and the very large flocks just didn't materialise. We did catch some birds however, and did a little better than the previous day.
