Hornsey Rd 22 May - Silvereyes are back

I set the Funnel Trap here this morning as there appeared to be a few Silvereyes back in the area. There wasn't a big catch but it is the first significant number for the year.
House Sparrow - 1 (0) a lot more about but most are trap shy.
Greenfinch - 0 (1) a bird banded at the Zoo March 2013
Blackbird - 0 (1)
Silvereye - 8 (6) about a month earlier than last year. Two of the recaps, AP-13676 & 77 were banded together at Houghton Bay in March this year and caught together today. Another 2, AP-11878 & 79 were banded together here in July last year and caught again today. The oldest recap was banded July 2011.
