Tui Recovery

I am in Auckland for a week so there hasn't been any banding but I have just had a recovery report from the DOC Banding Office of a Tui recovery. It was recovered at the Lyall Bay School and banded at the Zoo back last November so not a long recovery. I think this is the second Tui we have recovered from this school which is a bit of a surprise as I would have thought that there were not many in that area. Will check up when I get back to Wellington later in the week.

  1. Have just recovered a deceased tui in Onepu Road, Lyall Bay Wellington - unbanded - no obvious sign of reason for death. Am very sad as we have just succeed after 10 years in Onepu Road in having a tui visit our garden regularly.
