Houghton Bay Sunday 23 August

Andrea, George, Brian, Dave and I had a very quiet afternoon at the Houghton Bay stream this afternoon. Only caught 15 birds, all new, but with 6  species we at least had a bit of variety. Birds caught were - 4 Chaffinch, 4 Silvereye, 3 House Sparrows, 2 Tui and 1 each of Greenfinch and Grey Warbler.

Last year on 17 August we caught 81 birds, so a big drop this year.
