I had another session at the Houghton Bay stream this afternoon. I was late getting there so was about an hour late in setting up, which I think affected the catch as the majority of birds were caught in the first half hour. Kate and Mary arrived just after the initial rush was over so didn't get to process many birds.
The catch was 22 birds with 18 Silvereyes, 1 Tui, 1 Chaffinch, 1 Grey Warbler all new and a Fantail recap. So it was much quieter than yesterday morning.
