Houghton Bay Stream 9 December

I went down to the Houghton Bay stream this morning. It was relatively quiet,especially early, but I did end up catching 27 birds of 7 species with 23 new and 4 recaps.
Blackbird - 2 (0)
Chaffinch - 6 (1)
The recap Chaffinch, banded as a drab juvenile a year ago is now a handsome dude.
House Sparrow - 4 (0)
Dunnock - 1 (0)
Silvereye - 6 (3) the recap oldest banded Dec 2011
Tui - 1 (0)
Grey Warbler - 3 (0) all were Juveniles


This little fellow probably not long fledged.
