Manawa wetlands in New Lynn (Margan Ave) is a system of ponds designed to provide natural filtration for runoff water before it enters the Rewarewa Stream, and thence flows out into the Whau River and Waitemata Harbour.

Alas, after months of fine weather, there is not much that can be filtered, and a place that is otherwise teeming with ducks looks a bit lifeless. March this year was one of the driest on record.
