Results of 5 min bird counts at four locations within the Rangitane Reserve. 2020 was our fourth count, undertaken yearly in September. 

We have a network of 80 traps in the reserve and in 2 1/2 years have removed 700 pests. Huge thanks to Chris Owen, Deb, Mike and Zane for looking after lines in there.

Birds numbers are increasing check out the graphs!

We trapped nearly 2,500 mynas so this graph is with their call counts taken out of the data.  Gives a more accurate picture of the number of "good birds".
