|Although the Goldfinch were caught together and were both juveniles they were probably from different clutches.|
This afternoon I put a couple of nets up at the stream at the bottom of the property without a great deal of confidence of catching much. I was pleasantly surprised to catch 15 birds of 6 species all new.
Silvereye - 6
Dunnock - 1
Greenfinch - 1
Goldfinch - 1
Redpoll - 4
And the surprise of the day 2 Bellbird. The first caught at this site, an adult female and a juvenile male.
