A perfect blue sky day to visit Miranda and catch up with people, watch birds and hear an interesting talk. I reflected on the fact that ten years ago I would drive by the Miranda Shore Bird centre on my way to and from the Coromandel and wonder what went on inside this building set back from the road. Although I did venture to the hides on several occasions. However I never really timed it right for those high tides..
Then one day in 2011 I ventured inside and have since spent time meeting and listening to some great people and earlier this year attending the excellent six day residential Field Study course.
