Houghton Bay Stream 23 December

Peter is away have a well earned holiday with family.  One of the last things he did before leaving the city was to throw the nets at me with instruction to fill out the blog if I caught anything. As this is my first time at the blog please forgive any style changes.


It was an exceptionally quite morning at the stream, though there was plenty of song around the place, so the lack of captures must have been down to the guy putting up the nets (me).  Kate did all the recovery and banding work except for one - Mary's first weighing and measuring under Kate's supervision.

The morning total stands at:
Silvereye 6 (2)
Greenfinch 1
Goldfinch (1)
Chaffinch (1) banded at the zoo 3 years ago

Merry Christmas to all.
