Two pairs of Northern New Zealand dotterels have taken up residence at Wynyard Point, says Auckland Council, on land formerly occupied by the old tank farm, a site they’ve judged a prime nesting habitat. “Little is known about the movement of these birds,” says Ben Paris, Auckland Council’s Senior Conservation Advisor. “Tagging EDWard and his friends will allow us and the public when they sight one of these tagged birds, to let us know their whereabouts so we can form some pattern to their behaviour.”
