Hornsey Rd Wed 1 Oct - a few Silvereyes are back

I set the trap here at my place on Wednesday morning and also down the road at Bridie's in the afternoon. Didn't catch a lot of birds but did catch the first Silvereyes for a couple of months.
Combined numbers for both sites -
Blackbird - 0 (1) a bird banded on 9 Oct 2009 so 8 days from 5 years.
Greenfinch - 1 (2) 1 of the recaps banded at the Zoo Nov 2011
House Sparrow - 0 (1)
Starling - 1 (0)
Silvereye - 3 (5) the oldest recap was banded Aug 2010.

I am off down south for a bit of a trip so unlikely to be any banding or posts for a week or so.
