Comments:
Excellent birding spot! The Lagoon is very full- with abundant waterfowl species.The access road from the north-west is still flooded in several spots to a depth of over 30 cm,and all walking trails are closed. Headquarters/camping ground area still easily accessible via Woods Rd/Seagers Rd (from the north- east). Eremaea Birds List 212347 29/12/2013 18:00 to 30/12/2013 10:30
