Greenfinch - 5 (0)
House Sparrow - 3 (0)
Silvereye - 26 (21) Two of the recaps were over 5 years, one was banded in April 2010 with its only other recapture a month after banding. The other was banded May 2007, and this bird has been recaptured regularly with the last time 9 days ago.
Tui - 2 (0)

I arrived home to receive a recovery report from the Banding Office of a Tui which had been banded at the Zoo on 1 Aug 2009, so 4 birds over 5 years in one day was pretty good.
