NZ Falcon, Onepu, Whakatane

Hi all

had a male falcon on the Onepu cycle track at around 2pm. He was hunting, most probably the numerous Chaffinches and Blackbirds, along the widest track through the pines. Shining Bronze Cuckoo heard calling also in the Pine Forest

Reef Heron seen flying towards West End, Ohope Beach.

Cheers
