A solo juvenile godwit on the beach and three endangered pateke duck exploring a drainage ditch in daylight at Wooleys Bay. Sea primrose in flower at Ngungaru, Wooleys bay and at the Mermaid pools.
Whale bay as beautiful as ever I had to have a swim here and later I climbed high above the beach to a headland that maybe could be a pa site.
On the coastal path to Whale bay native clematis is in flower these are the male flowers.
Behind Matapouri beach I discovered a hidden pathway leading to a beautiful grove of Nikau palms in the DOC Otito Reserve.
