Rushcliffe Country Park - 15 Nov 2009

After meeting at 0700 and then waiting for the rain to stop we eventually had the feeder nets up and open by 0800. There seemed to be plenty of birds around and the first round produced about 10 birds. From that point on the clouds broke up, the sun came out, the breeze picked up and it all went downhill from there. Despite me telling a few people we finished on 26 birds it was wishful thinking as we only had 21. The pick of the bunch were 4 Goldfinch and a Bullfinch. As the birds dropped off we completed the ride clearance ready for next Saturday, weather permitting we should get 10 nets up next week.
