I still managed to catch 24 birds of 5 species with 13 new and 11 recaps. Birds caught were -
Blackbird - 1 (0)
Chaffinch - 4 (2) one of the recaps was banded on the third day of banding here and at 658 days from banding is now the oldest bird of any species beating the Silvereye caught on Monday by 7 days.
|The old Chaffinch, note the frost on the ground - it was a cracker.|
Silvereye - 7 (7)
Tui - 0 (1)
|The recap Tui - a reasonably old female|
