Great Forest & Bird visit today to the Goat Island Marine reserve with an excellent guided tour of the wet tanks and talk by Tim. Thanks John for organising such an interesting tour.
Elaine, Helen and I then went on to Mathesons bay for a walk up the stream track and then stopped for lunch.
Then with still time to spare we called in at the Omaha Wildlife reserve to see the large flock of banded dotterels.
The final visit for the day was to call in at Charlie's ice cream shop at Matakana for an ice cream to round of a great day.
