At Wellington Zoo 23 July & 26 August 2017

Apologies for the delay in posting this.  Bird numbers are increasing at the zoo with an old Silvereye returning after 2997 days between captures (originally banded 9 May 2009). 

This beastie had two sets of bling applied, one being an A band which made us instantly aware that it was an old bird.
