Karori Cemetery - another day and a few more birds

Mary, Kate, Katherine and I had another attempt to catch Tui at the Karori Cemetery this morning. With re-positioned nets we had hopes of a better catch than on Monday but it was not to be, we only caught 1. As well we did manage to also catch 6 Blackbirds and 2 Song Thrush. The Song Thrush were only the 5th & 6th we have caught at this site in the 10 years we have been banding there.
Katherine banding her first Song Thrush

Kate also banded her first Song Thrush

There was no sign of any Bellbird today but there were a surprising number of Keraru about and we had a fly over of 3 Parakeets, the first I have seen there, almost certainly "escapees" from Zealandia.
