Christchurch - a couple of sessions.

On Thursday we had a session at the Halswell Quarry. We used the same site as last week which proved to be a mistake as we had a very poor catch. A total of 6 birds for the morning, 2 new House Sparrows, 1 new Dunnock, 2 Blackbird recaps (both from last week) and a recap Greenfinch. The Greenfinch was at least a bit interesting being the oldest recap for the species and the 2nd oldest of  any species.

On Friday Phil had a session at his place in Motukarara. He at least was reasonably successful, catching 21 birds of 9 species with 18 new and 3 recaptures.
