Mt Albert Fennel patch
Before I went up to Auckland a few weeks ago I cut net lanes and set up guy ropes at the Mt Albert fennel patch. I even managed to get a net up for a while and caught half a dozen Silvereyes. When I came back I found that the area had been leveled and is now a construction site. The Council are building a new water tank and are repairing some old ones to make them earthquake resistant. I had known that the work was planned but had hoped that they wouldn't start for another month or so. Last year we caught over 100 Silvereyes there. If we had caught that number this year SE's would have been still top of the perch.
