This is what has been observed and deduced from the ringing sessions so far.
24th Sep 2011- Umzumbe. Re-capture of Yellow Weaver adult male (BH05488). New longevity record. 7 years 9 months and 18 days. Ringed 1.6km away at Wozani, indicating this population of Yellow Weavers possibly fairly sedentary.
2nd Oct 2011- Umzumbe Floodplain. Re-capture of adult un-sexed Cape Weaver (CV34528). Ringed by Andrew on 5th June 2010 at Wozani, indicating this population of Cape Weavers also possibly fairly sedentary.
