It was the OSNZ census of the Kaipara today. Marie Ward, Sue Cook, Bill Abbot and I were allocated the north end of Big Sand. Darren Markin joined us
Among 21 species of wader, tern and gull counted there were one each of:
Greater Sand Plover
The Common Tern was in breeding plumage with cap down to the top of it's bill
With White-fronts and Caspians also present we had 5 tern sp all close together.
