The newly reclaimed Onehunga foreshore – now named “Taumanu Reserve” – was opened last November. It is pleasing to see that after all the disturbance with heavy earthmoving machinery etc the birds appear to have adopted the place. Oystercatchers and pied stilts are roosting there regularly, and a number of NZ dotterels are in residence; ducks and herons too.

And the pied stilts have offspring.
