There were happy children and busy hands when Jim Eagles visited Kaiaua School last week. Painting “the Flock” birds is a great fit with the school’s teaching programme. Really looking forward to visiting to see the finished birds.
Meanwhile down in Nelson another flock is fledging, the first in the South Island. Rochelle downloaded the plans from www.miranda-shorebird.org.nz/theflock , then persuaded some friends to make the cut-outs. These are the first two finished birds. Love the eyes! A roosting site is being sought.
Of course many of the real birds are now in the Yellow Sea region. At the end of the week a small group from Pukorokoro Miranda Naturalists’ Trust will travel to North Korea, following the birds. We hope that they will manage to keep in touch and tell us of their findings.
