The amazing annual migrations of Bar-tailed Godwits, nearly half the world population of Wrybill, whirling flocks of thousands of shorebirds, the rare geology of shell bank cheniers, the nature and rhythms of the estuary – are just some of the features of the Miranda coast on the Firth of Thames. These and other stories are told at the Miranda Shorebird Centre http://www.miranda-shorebird.org.nz/ on the Firth of Thames.
Best time to catch the birds is 2 hours on either side of high tide, which is at 1.38 on this day.
There is no charge to enter the estuary, though a donation is suggested.
