Description

Single male bird noted on beach. Identified by Department of Conservation (on the basis of leg bands) as a male that had been released on Motutapu Island. This bird had not been seen for about 12 months - so was a welcome rediscovery.

These images are not mine but were taken by Sarah Cull-Luketina who had way more patience than me and a much better camera.
