|Jutland 'Ratpack' and friends|
Joel led the way showing how to record the bait take up and this took most of the morning. Then people volunteered for various lines to continue checking bait stations through the coming months.
|Don't forget your bait station key|
In the afternoon Joel and I laid another bait line through the coastal fringe vegetation and this should help protect this bush particularly coming up to the nesting season.
We hope that by knocking down the predator populations that our shore birds including the NZ dotterels will be able to nest successfully on the shell banks around the bay and this should also help the rarely seen banded rails that inhabit the foreshore.
