Houghton Bay 5 August - a few new birds.

I spent a couple of hours at the Houghton Bay stream this afternoon and caught 17 birds of 7 species - all new. Birds caught were Silvereye 7, Blackbird 3, Chaffinch 3 and 1 each of Dunnock, House Sparrow, Fantail and Tui. Most of the birds were caught in the first 45 minutes and then it went quiet, perhaps I was a bit late getting there.
