We had a good turn out to our working bee on Maketu Spit last weekend. Seventeen people planted two hundred trees on the estuary margin, and helped to fix the pest deflection fence. They were treated to the sight of a flock of Royal Spoonbills using the wetland in the area that used to be stagnant. It’s great to see the water clearing up after the causeway was opened, drawing in the shorebirds and giving them more feeding areas.
