Set the Funnel Trap for Silvereyes today with considerable success. In all caught 38 with 17 new and 21 recaps. Of the recaps 7 were banded last week, 5 from Mt Albert earlier this year and the rest from previous years including 2 from Houghton Bay. The oldest was banded July 08. This is the highest tally of Silvereyes caught in May for at least 15 years with the previous highest being 30 in May 2003. Whether this is a taste of what is to come over the next few months or just an aberration time will tell.
