Rangitane Reserve bird monitoring

    Results of 5 min bird counts at four locations within the Rangitane Reserve. 2022 was our sixth count, undertaken yearly in September. 

    We have a network of 80 traps in the reserve and in 4 1/2 years have removed over 1,300 pests. Huge thanks to Chris Owen, Deb, and Zane for looking after lines in there.

    Birds numbers are increasing - total birds seen and heard over baseline year + 171%
