AUTUMN 2023 : The Petrel Station pelagic seabird tours, Tutukaka, NZ

Postby ourspot » Wed Nov 30, 2022 12:10 pm

AUTUMN 2023 : The Petrel Station pelagic seabird tours (offshore from Tutukaka, Northland, New Zealand).

Here's The Petrel Station pelagic seabird tour dates for autumn 2023:
– 25 April (ANZAC Day Tuesday) – only 2 places left
– 1 May (Monday) – TRIP FULL
– 13 May : eBird GLOBAL BIG DAY (Saturday) – only 1 place left
– 21 May (Sunday) – only 1 place left

In autumn, as the weather and oceans cool down, it’s migration time for the seabirds heading up from the southern oceans so there’s potential for some scarcer species passing through, and also a good variety of albatross species show up in the area. Most of the local summer breeders depart on their migration, and the local winter breeders return and begin to build in numbers as well. And there’s still usually a few Grey Ternlets around till the end April.

Get in touch if you’re keen for a great day out with some stunning seabirds - The best way to experience these seabirds is out on the ocean, in their world :)

NEW AUTUMN TRIPS ADDED : April and May 2023
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I've just added some new trip dates out to The Petrel Station for the autumn season so get in touch if you're keen on a great day out with the stunning seabirds, offshore from Tutukaka (in northern NZ).

In AUTUMN as the weather and oceans cool down it's migration time for the seabirds heading up from the southern oceans so there's potential for some scarcer species passing through, and a good variety of albatross species show up in the area. Most of the local summer breeders gradually depart on their migration, and the local winter breeders return and begin to build in numbers as well.

AUTUMN trip dates:
– 25th April 2023 (Tuesday - ANZAC Day) – only 2 places left
– 1st May 2023 (Monday) – TRIP FULL
– 13th May 2023 (Saturday - eBIRD GLOBAL BIG DAY) – only 1 place left
– 21st May 2023 (Sunday) – only 1 place left

The trip on the 13th May is 'eBIRD GLOBAL BIG DAY' so come along and be part of the world's biggest birding event :)

Cheers

Hi all

One place has become available on next Sundays (21st May) pelagic seabird trip out to The Petrel Station so get in touch if you're interested in a day out with the stunning seabirds.

In autumn it’s migration time for the seabirds heading up from the southern oceans so there’s potential for some scarcer species passing through, and also a good variety of albatross species show up in the area. The local winter breeders will have started to return and begin to build in numbers as well. And hopefully there’ll still be a few Grey Ternlets around too.

Find out lots more at: www.thepetrelstation.nz
