May is a great time to visit Pūkorokoro Miranda Shorebird Centre – just make sure you come near high tide so the birds are close enough to see.

Most of the godwits have now headed off on their migration journey to the Arctic. However there are still some godwits here and there are many other kinds of birds here too. You will see South Island Pied Oystercatchers, Wrybill, Banded Dotterel, Royal Spoonbill and more.

Visit the Shorebird Centre to learn about the birds, then head 2km down the road to the bird hides to view the birds.
