5 rifleman were heard and 2 seen on the Aongatete Forest Project track. Inside the bush track from lower car park about 1 minute from the start of the track. This is 17 minutes from Katikati in car. They enjoy robust pest control in the area and are using nest boxes. Freely accessible to the public. Paul Cuming. BirdsBOP.
