The site has very good potential but we have left it a bit late in the summer to really get a big catch. Nineteen birds were caught and all, not surprisingly, were new. 1 Fantail, 3 Grey Warbler and 15 Silvereye.
|Almost half the Silvereye were caught together. The foliage in the background gives an idea of how a cat can ambush bathing birds. This little stream is probably the only available water in the area in a dry summer.|
