This week Jim Eagles went on a journey to Oropi in the Bay of Plenty. With him went “The Flock” from Pukorokoro Miranda Shorebird Centre.

Jim’s daughter, Alex Eagles-Tully has been much involved in  the fledging a flock of birds from the Ruru team of Oropi School, to join “The Flock”.

The welcoming of the new “Flock” members was a joyous event last week.

The students really enjoyed making these fantastic birds to join”The Flock” but more importantly they were thrilled to learn about them.

Many of these young enthusiasts will be coming along to Pukorokoro Miranda with their parents and siblings this school holidays to see the birds for real.

Thank you class Ruru at Oropi School for learning about and caring for our shorebirds, the birds you made to join “the Flock” are incredible.
