Bream Head Reserve looking over Ocean Beach

Whitehead Project at Bream Head = Success

Last May we translocated a flock of 100 whitehead into the Bream Head Scenic Reserve.  A couple of weeks ago a team of enthusiastic volunteers, under the guidance of Mike Butcher and Adam Willetts, carried out a survey to see how they have been establishing themselves.

WELCOME TO BREAM HEAD SCENIC RESERVE

The Bream Head Scenic Reserve is a coastal headland 45 km south east of Whangarei. An iconic Reserve with a rugged shoreline backed by steep forest-clad slopes and rocky outcrops and peaks, Bream Head dominates the landscape. Its imposing form is a natural gateway to the Whangarei Harbour.

With sustained and intensive pest control, the ecosystem is flourishing. New species have been found, birds are being reintroduced and species that were only occasional visitors from the Hen and Chicken Islands are now breeding within the reserve.
