We have 3 nests and 6 eggs at Mangawhai. The birds that deserted their nest in the recent storm have re-nested after only 6 days.
There are 3 eggs incubating at Auckland Zoo and they will begin the captive breeding program for this season – one egg is from Papakanui.
Rangers have been kept very busy replacing hazing fences after they were buried by strong winds, plus monitoring traps and signs of new nests.
It’s exciting times!!”
