I saw a falcon over the SH2 Upper Hutt/Silverstream bridge a few weeks ago.

There are rifleman up Mt Clime & Tomtit on the Cannon Point walk.
I often see falcon around home hunting over the suburban streets and have seen them staking out the pigeons that live under Moonshine Bridge
Just need some Kaka to finally make their way up these ways

Awesome! I keep an ear out for them in UH but no luck yet. Should be soon that they spread (fingers crossed)
