I stopped on my way back from Bethells Beach, to have a look at the expansive wetlands in the lower Te Henga valley. It is winter, and the reeds are showing their seasonal (dis)coloration. We are looking towards the west, behind the ridge is O’Neill Bay.
This is a haven for water fowl: various kinds of ducks, swans, pukeko, etc.
