It was great to get an email from Graham announcing that three bar-tailed godwits had arrived in Ngataringa Bay.
I had to check the High tide roost sites this morning and counted 22 now at Ngataringa Bay. Last year they reached 260 recorded at Shoal Bay on the 15th of December 2016.
On a high tide roost site in Shoal Bay estuary there are still two of the sixty three wrybill, left. We would have expected them to have left for the South Island for breeding by now.
