Miranda Calling

Great to attend the residential NNZ Dotterel course at the Miranda Shorebird Centre this week. John Dowding is the 'Master' when it comes to all things 'dotterel'

John's depth of knowledge through his  research work over many years and his keenness to pass on information to help with dotterel management make for a great few days.

 It was good to catch up with familiar people and some new  from DOC, Auckland Council and other voluntary groups around the East and West Coast too of the North Island.

John teaches the distance that it  is safe to move at risk nests.

Photos to follow.
