The rain alarm was not much use today with a decision to ride out an early short flurry because of a ‘long gap’ being a bad move and wet furled nets were eventually brought in to dry at a site where you just cannot risk leaving them overnight, especially with the ‘nobody tells me where I cant pick my blackberries’ brigade! So a forecasted three hour ore rain session ended up as one and a half rounds.
This was highlighted by two Goldcrest, a Robin and Blackcap.
