Greenfinch - 4 (0)
House Sparrow - 2 (0)
Silvereye - 10 (3) the oldest banded August 2011 and another banded at Hornsey Rd
Fantail - 0 (1) a recently banded bird
Grey Warbler - 1 (2) 1 of the recaps banded Jan 2012 and the other in Dec 2009. This bird is now at 1322 days our oldest Grey Warbler caught at this site and the second oldest at any of our sites.
