Taking advantage of the perfect tidal conditions, this morning I counted the roosting shorebirds found between the Weiti river entrance and Dacre Point.
After last year's cancellation due to COVID-19, the forum was back this year and I had the pleasure to give a talk.
Since I was in Wellington for a few days, I finally visited Te Papa's exhibition 'Te Taiao | Nature'. The expo features some of the conservation work I contributed to in Piha, among other success stories from around New Zealand.
I recently spotted some nest protective covers at Otamure Bay, in Northland, for nesting Northern New Zealand dotterel tūturiwhatu (Charadrius obscurus aquilonius).
This year's FOSS4G SoTM Oceania conference was a mix of online and physical events scattered all over the continent. In Auckland we were lucky enough to have our own hub which I had the opportunity to join - and I was lucky enough to give a short talk.
I was fortunate enough to spend the last weekend doing a wader identification course at the Pūkorokoro Miranda Shorebird Centre. After having had to postpone it the last two seasons, I was really looking forward to it and boy, it didn't disappoint. What an epic weekend of birding.
