Welcome to the birds returning to the Manawatu Estuary
Whakarongo ki manu Listen to the birds,
Korori, Korora to land birds, to the sea birds
Korerotia mai no tuawhaka-rere say it’s time to fly
Whakaronga ki manu Listen to the birds
E koroki ana that sing at dawn chorus
i te ata, i te ata in the morning, in the morning
i te awatea at dawn.
Tihei mauriora I sneeze the breath of life.
We were pleased to have many of you join us for our Welcome to the birds event. Iwi gave the Karanga, and, as always, we were pleased to have an update on the migration of the godwits from Dr Phil Battley. It was very pleasing to hear that after two good breeding seasons the number of juvenile godwits was increasing.
Our AGM . This will be on the 25th November 2023 in the Holben Pavilion, Holben Parade, Foxton Beach at 2pm
