Hornsey Rd 11 June Silvereyes

With rain forecast for the rest of the week and a Southerly change expected I set the funnel trap this afternoon to check if there were any new Silvereyes about. In about an hour and a half before the southerly hit I caught 37 with 12 new birds and 25 recaptures. As well as the 12 new birds another 6 haven't been caught at this site this year  so there appears to have been a small influx of new birds. Hopefully there will be a chance next week to see if this is the case.
