This morning (2 Apr) I saw 2 Ibis flying over the Opawa river from the direction of Dillons Point road towards the waste treatment plant.

No sign of any ibis at Foxton Beach. No interesting rare birds this summer.

Checked the WTP, lagoons, Swamp and Dillons Pt Road paddocks yesterday morning to no avail. Although there was a Royal spoonbill with a twisted leg partway down the Wairau walkway. It was approachable and could still fly/feed, but may be worth keeping an eye out for. Highlight of the area was a small flock of Cirl bunting!
