Zoo Stream Friday 28 Aug - a few birds

I went to the little stream over the fence from the Zoo this afternoon for an hour or so. The main purpose was to check the area and put up some guys for use over the summer. Managed to get a couple of nets up for a while and caught 9 birds of 4 species with 7 new and a couple of recaps.
Blackbird - 0 (1) a bird recently banded in the Zoo.
Chaffinch - 4 (1) the recap was banded at the Prince of Wales Park in March 2013.
Goldfinch - 2 (0)
Tui - 1 (0)

Hornsey Rd

Yesterday I set traps, here in the morning and down the road at Bridie's in the afternoon. Didn't catch much with a recap Blackbird banded in 2010 the only significant bird.
