Species caught were -
Song Thrush - 1 (0) first bird caught.
House Sparrow - 7 (2) there is quite a big flock about but I think the majority have learnt to avoid the nets.
Silvereye - 14 (13) most of the recaps were recently banded, many at Mark's apple orchard which is about 2-300 m away as the bird flys.
Bellbird - 1 (1)
Tui - 3 (0) a bit of a surprise to catch 3 new Tui as I thought I had most of the locals banded.
