Possible white-browed woodswallow in Nelson district

Postby Colin Miskelly » Mon Jun 29, 2020 10:30 am

Kia ora

I have received a report via New Zealand Birds Online 'Contact Us' of a possible white-browed woodswallow on a farm in the Nelson district (I do not have any more detail than this on where the property is).

Please send me an email to colin.miskelly [at] tepapa.govt.nz if you want contact details for the landowner, who has agreed that these can be provided to those interested in visiting the property to look for the bird.

Ngā mihi

As you may guess by the late update - nothing to report.
Thanks to Lindy for showing me around but not totally convinced how legit the sighting actually is.
Have left my detail in case it returns.
