NZ Dotterel

NZ Dotterel Waikanae Beach 21 Sep 2019 1st.jpg

It is unusual to see the endemic New Zealand Dotterel breeding so far south in the North Island.  There is a pair attempting to breed on Waikanae Beach again this year.  A very popular spot for whitebaiting, dog walkers and general family fun, so it is quite a challenge for these birds.  There are signs and a simple fence to try and keep people out, but we’ll see how it goes again this year.
