Similar stilt numbers there today along with 1 egret. Also 8 Caspian tern and a pair of RB Gulls. To the NE at Kopuku, the paddocks are still pretty wet too with over 300 stilt, a lone dabchick, and 2 Black-billed Gulls (always nice inland here) among other water lovers. Big flocks (1000+) of goldfinch and greenfinch in the area.
