Porangahau Estuary Wader Count June 2018

Postby Joanna10 » Wed Jun 27, 2018 10:22 pm

Attached are the results of the winter wader survey for the Porangahau Estuary, conducted June 24th. This was a joint exercise between Hawkes Bay and Wairarapa Branches of Birds New Zealand.
Highlights were the Northern shoveler (of course!), good numbers of wrybill and NZ dotterels and the interest-factor had to be the leucistic Pied stilt.
It was a great day and much enjoyed by the Wairarapa contingent who had not visited the estuary before.

It was a great day, thanks to Bernie Kelly! It should also be noted the data has been entered into eBird for future reference.
