Located only an hour from Auckland the 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 Miranda during part of the year, and with numbers of shorebirds often exceeding 10,000 the Miranda coastline is almost a mandatory stop for any birdwatcher passing by.  Visit the Shorebird Centre and find out what birds are around, stay with us for a weekend escape from the bustle of the city or join us for one of our regular events.

    Instead of risking a bumper-crunching day trip on the road north out of Auckland, we headed south to Miranda on the Firth of Thames and were soon wondering why we hadn't visited this - New Zealand Herald

  • Greenshank on the stilt pools this morning! Great start to the wader ID course. We'll have a look this evening and see if it's still there/try and get photos.
