A beautiful day on the river today and the Black fronted Terns were taking full advantage of a sunny spot in the middle of the Waiau. 13 in this group and more flying and twirling in the sky. No sign yet of any of the other birds but if this weather continues it won't be long now.
I walked down beyond riverside reserve and can almost get to the end of our designated catchment area opposite the Lime quarry if the river keeps falling I should be able to get around the corner. Later this week I hope to try and take a walk up the east bank on the south side of the river.
