Waikawa Beach spokesbird?

Russell Smith sent in this photo of our Waikawa Beach matuku moana or white-faced heron strolling across the footbridge.

If it’s the same bird, it’s been hanging round houses and people in Strathnaver, Emma Drive and other parts of our community.

If you see it, say Hi!

  1. Came to visit us again over the weekend. One of three flying around Kristin Place/Emma Drive. Perhaps this one the odd one out?
