Greenfinch - 10 (4) One of the recaps originally banded in Dec 2009 is the oldest Greenfinch we have recaptured in the last couple of years.

Silvereye - 14 (3) The oldest recap was banded in July 2008 so is a reasonably old bird. Interestingly although banded at the Zoo this is the first time it has been recaptured.
