Q-town Mon 15 Feb - More Redpolls

I put up  2 nets again at the stream this afternoon and soon realised my mistake and had to furl one so that I could cope with the number of birds being caught. In just a couple of hours I caught 53 birds, and with 5 species there was a little bit of variation.
Birds waiting to be processed - all Redpoll except for a Goldfinch at the far end

Greenfinch - 3
Goldfinch -
Silvereye - 1
Tui - 1 a newly fledged male
The newly fledged Tui
The rest were Redpoll with 43 new and a couple of recaps, both the recaps had been banded in the last week.
Most of the Redpolls were juveniles but there were a few older birds including this cracking male.
I am away for the next week so am unlikely to be doing another post for a while.
