|Miranda is the best site in New Zealand for seeing Wrybill.||Shorebirds of New Zealand:
Sharing the margins
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.

Visitors to Pukorokoro Miranda Shorebird Centre are often fascinated by our resident pukekos, though they are not shorebirds.This is an idyllic picture of a family following a vegetarian lifestyle. Sometimes appearances can be deceptive. Their bill is a powerful weapon and ducklings can appear on their menu.
Can you find the Wrybill?
A very successful open day at the centre on Sunday. Adrian Riegen gave us a very interesting talk on the results of the work at Yalu Jiang since 1999, and the report that was produced by the Trust . In the photo Chair Gillian Vaughan introduces Adrian.
