Blumine Trip at beginning March

Postby MacHector » Thu Feb 07, 2019 1:29 am

Hi All

I am trying to organise a trip to Blumine Island on 5 March 2019 (maybe combined with Motuara). There are obviously some special birds there, Malherbe's Parakeet in particular. There is some flexibility on dates with a bit of warning, so please get touch in if you are at all interested.

Best wishes

Hi Andrew,
I have been there before on a day trip with 2 friends to see Orange-fronted Parakeet. I found it was a lot cheaper to get dropped off and picked up at Blumine Island by Cougar Lines, the water taxi operator based in Picton.
Good luck,
Michael
