Prince of Wales Park Sunday 15 Feb.

Considering the doubtful weather, especially early this morning when there was a very strong Southerly blowing with intermittent light showers, we had a successful afternoon session at the Prince of Wales Park. There was a good turnout of participants who entertained themselves during the quieter moments and brought to mind the saying 'idle hands make mischief".
Mary with an interesting nose adornment. (I am not sure that it will become fashionable) 

Most of the "Team" pointing out an interesting object, possibly a low flying Moa?
(The girls are to busy with their phones to notice).
 Caught 26 birds of 5 species, all new except a Goldfinch recap. Dunnock 1, Chaffinch 2, Goldfinch 10 (1) and House Sparrow 8.
A slightly busier time,
Almost all the adult Finches are now well into their moult. We probably got our best sample of Goldfinch moult with more than half the birds caught being adults in moult.
A Chaffinch well into its wing moult.
