Located only an hour from Auckland the Pukorokoro Miranda Shorebird Centre is an excellent stop to escape the city and have a look at some of New Zealand’s amazing birdlife. With nearly half of the population of the endemic Wrybill found at Pukorokoro Miranda during part of the year, and with numbers of shorebirds often exceeding 10,000 the coastline is almost a mandatory stop for any birdwatcher passing by.
Come and hear Adrian Riegen speak on Pukorkoro Miranda’s adventures in North Korea. 11 am so come for birding first. More events. Note the census date was incorrectly shown as Nov 20th, it is actually Nov 12th. Meeting is still 1pm. Come at 11 to help send the magazine out.
