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.
If you’ve ever wanted to be involved in wader counting then come and join us for the Firth of Thames Census. Meet at the Centre 11:30, normally finished by about 3. People with all levels of expertise welcome.

The Shorebird Centre is looking forward to the celebration, and seeing the bird costumes. Well done to all involved.
Visitors to the hide at Pukorokoro Miranda will notice that a nice wide, level and compacted walkway has been constructed thanks to the generosity..
We are now enjoying the wrybill at Pukorokoro Miranda but we are very much aware that this is due to the conservation efforts elsewhere. Work..
