Wrybill back in Canterbury

Postby bdarlow » Mon Aug 13, 2018 9:15 am

Yesterday, Sunday 12th August, around midday a tight flock of 15-20 Wrybill flew in to sandbank on the far side of the Ashley River from the seaward sandspit at Waikuku, settled briefly and then took of again, flying high and apparently heading inland. We then found three others feeding busily on the shore. Brian Darlow
