Stoked to see the Northern Shoveler this morning amongst the Australasian shovelers and geese. It was in the South-eastern pond. A kōtuku was an extra bonus!

Hi Adam, by “north end of tue north pond” - do you mean the farthest north pond that has black water on google earth maps? or the one north of the pond just north of the beach access road?
