Wellington Zoo 17 June 2017

At last the birds are back in reasonable numbers.  66 captures had the team working hard on a fine Wellington winters day.

Annette's washing line to hold the waiting birds proved to be a great idea.

The captures (recaps in brackets) were:
House Sparrow - 29(4)
Green Finch - 17(2)
Gold Finch - 1(0)
Silvereye - 19(6)

Ros demonstrating the old adage of 2 birds in the hand make banding difficult.
Thanks to Ros, Annette and Geoff for providing level 3 support.
