Holme Pierrepont - Sunday 26 July 2009

On arrival we were warned by a Water Sports Centre employee to be out of the car park by 1200 or be prepared to spend hours battling to leave as it was the ‘Race for Life’ event. Having been trapped by this chaos before, we knew it was good advice so it was another short session.

We put up most of the nets but the wind soon started making life difficult. Despite that we still managed over 60 birds. Unringed adult Reed Warblers are still popping into the nets along with all the usual species. Another new Great Spotted Woodpecker competed with the race tanoy in the decibel department. A jay that spent much of the day around the site managed to evade all the nets.
