Shoal Bay Forest & Bird Walk

Following on from the newspaper article last Tuesday, today was a chance to take a group of  Forest and Bird members for a walk along the shell barrier bank at Shoal Bay.

 Meeting at one of our new signs at  10.30am  a good turnout of people arrived. This later  included Margi and some of her 'Bush Walk and Talk' people from an earlier Saturday morning walk who turned up just after 11am and this made a good number of 15 people for checking out the birds in the estuary.



 We watched  pied stilts, NZ dotterels, kingfisher, Caspian tern, white- faced heron, and  Southern Black backed gulls, adult and juvenile.

Many Thanks to Neil Davies and Margi Keys who supplied these photos of our group today.
