Whangateau Harbour - Gem of Auckland’s Estuaries - NZ Dottrel
Image by Roger Grace, published on 04/05/2011
In contrast to the muddy estuaries close to Auckland, sand flats in the upper harbour are clean and firm and easy to walk on. They provide extensive feeding areas for the rare NZ dotterel, which breeds on the end of Omaha spit, where they struggle against predators like cats, rats and hedgehogs, and disturbance by people and dogs.
