Ohiwa Harbour- white heron

Postby McCleary » Wed Jul 10, 2019 4:03 pm

I would like clarification on a possible sighting of a white heron in Ohiwa Harbour. Took some photos but only with an iPhone. First one I’ve seen in 18 years of living here but I’m now doubting myself.

Can we see the photos please. Even if they are a bit distant it may be enough to know.

There is usually a white heron in the Opotiki area (sometimes seen from the wharf) so could be that guy moved over. Photos will help confirm :)
