Drone congegation area revisited

Five years ago, Vita’s blogger visited Greenham Common, at one-time a 3km by 0.5km disused airfield and now a nature reserve. At each end and in the middle of the Common, drones almost instantly appeared at the lure. What happened yesterday?

Only one end of the Common appeared to be active. And the drones took a little longer to appear. Was this because it was a week or two earlier in the season and not some many drones were about?

Watch what happens when the lure is lowered into a bush. Nearly all of the drones appear to lose interest and when the lure is hoisted again, a large number seem to have flown off elsewhere.

The never-ending puzzle of DCAs.
