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.
