It was great to be asked to help with the Hauraki school shell bank clean-up at Shoal Bay this morning following my talk and Power Point to the Middle School on Wednesday..
At twenty past nine a huge crowd of children with their teachers and parent helpers descended on the shell beach at Charles street to begin the clean up. The students excitedly searched for plastic rubbish stopping only to ask the occasional question about birds, look through my scope at pied stilt and dotterel or re-fit their sometimes loose and stuck in the mud gumboots. A magic morning!
