Deepdale Farm - 22nd September 2023

 After a few days of terrible weather that brought American migrants to the west coast, we finally got out and tried Deepdale Farm again.

We could hear Meadow Pipit, so tried a configuration of three nets, but only succeeded in attracting birds to sit on the net. The breeze proved too much and the couple that did drop into one of the panels quickly managed to get out again.

The usual nets captured a nice mix of the birds that you would expect to be around during late September.

Long-tailed Tit

One of several Robins on site, heard all the time, sometimes caught 
but rarely seen when singing

LJN029 Adult Chiffchaff, ringed near Hollersley Heath, Suffolk
