Birds return

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:08 pm on 14 September 2010

In a sure sign of spring, the godwits are due to return to New Zealand from Alaska. A celebration of the epic 11 thousand 500 kilometer non-stop flight this weekend went ahead without the bar-tailed godwit when they failed to show up. About 3000 of these amazing birds will spend their summer in Motueka and should be arriving in the next few weeks.
