We had a session at the Prince of Wales Park stream this afternoon. There were very few birds about and we only caught 5 - 2 Dunnocks, 1 Greenfinch, 1 Silvereye and a Blackbird recap. There was a NZ Falcon hanging around the area which might have contributed to the absence of small birds.
I am going out to Mana Is for most of next week to assist with a Birds NZ field trip which involves a dozen or so teenagers. Should be interesting. One of the projects will be bird banding so hopefully we will catch a variety of species that will be new to the Group. I doubt if there will be internet access but if there is I will do a few posts. Most likely posting will have to wait until I get back.
