|All the Grey Warblers had the reddish eyes of adult birds|
Of the 9 recaptures only 1 was banded at this site; with over 3300 banded there in the last 5 years this is surprising. 5 birds were banded at the Mt Albert site with 4 being from the 164 that were banded this year, 2 were from Hornsey Rd and another from Houghton Valley School.
There were several Silvereyes with pox-like lesions mostly on the foot but one had a large one below the eye.
