Black tailed Godwit - Waimea Nelson

Postby Steve Wood » Sat Apr 13, 2019 7:24 pm

Had a report from Willie Cook and Don Cooper of an impressive looking bird seen yesterday and photographed by Willie Cook.
Checked out the site today but not seen, tides not great and could be else ware.

Hi Roblyn
The bird was seen on the eastern end of Bell's Island.
