Black Stilts, Waiau River

Postby Patrick Crowe » Sat Oct 27, 2018 7:23 am

Yesterday I was taking part in the Waiau River surveys along with eCan and Braid. A black stilt was spotted by Heather Davies right at the start of the day. It was approx 200m downstream of the SH1 bridge on the true left. A further two birds with different band combinations were spotted 4km downstream.

Later in the day another team spotted two black stilts at the first location just down from the SH1 bridge.
