Chobham Common - 6th August 2017

It's a while since we did Chobham so we went along this morning. We caught three Chiffchaffs in the first half hour, followed by a Dartford Warbler. It was generally quiet and there were few Stonechats, Dartford Warblers or much else in our immediate area, although some were seen in a sheltered area close to the railway.

After a gap of over 90 minutes we got some more captures with a couple of Willow Warblers, a Great Tit and a Goldcrest. It was just a few birds for our efforts, so it could be a while before we try another morning session - the heather was stunning in the August sunshine.

There were a few Graylings along the path
