Results of 5 min bird counts at four locations within the Rangitane Reserve. 2019 was our third count, undertaken yearly in September. 

Key species are up over our baseline pre-trapping 2017 figures:

Fantail +150%
Tui + 40%
Warbler +17%

We have a network of 80 traps in the reserve and in 18 months have removed 444 pests. Huge thanks to Mike Cadogan and Chris Owen for looking after lines in there.
