We did manage to catch 30 birds with 29 new and only 1 recapture. This was a Silvereye which was banded at the Houghton Valley School in May 2010. Other birds caught were 15 Goldfinch, 7 Chaffinch, 2 Greenfinch, 1 House Sparrow, 3 Silvereye and 1 Tui. With the exception of 3 of the Goldfinch and the Silvereye most of the birds were juveniles.
|One of the juvenile Chaffinch had a very prominent growth bar.|
|Two of the Goldfinch caught together might have been Mother and Daughter|
