Bream Head Reserve from Manaia

Rangers Report – May 2012

Kiwi Jules is giving us the run around at the moment; it seems to have been one of those seasons! Both he and Frida appear to have nested but we have been unable to confirm. We will have another look at Jules’s nest this week but despite his transmitter changing to non-incubating in late April he continued to hold tight on the nest, his transmitter signal changing back to incubating 5 days later. Chances are he has had a second chick which often hatches a week to ten days after the first one.
