possible Pacific Heron at Waipu

Postby David Lawrie » Sat Sep 21, 2019 8:06 pm

I have just had a report from Gwenda Pulham and others of a potential Pacific Heron see today in the sandhills near Waipu today.
it was not in usual heron type habitat, that is near water.
It quickly flew off south before any photos could be taken, and could not be found again.
so if you are in the area or anywhere along the east coast keep your eyes on any heron in a strange place.
good luck
