New bird hide in Waikoko wetland


A bird hide was installed in the Waikoko wetland and a new picnic table was also set up during the FOMI weekend working bee in March. 

A big thank you to the many people who helped make this happen:

  • OMV for sponsoring this project.
  • The DOC team of rangers Nick and Otis for help on the ground and the delivery logistics.
  • Porirua DOC staff for helping with biosecurity and delivery to the island.
  • All the FOMI volunteers who have contributed to this project.
  • Adrian for designing and assembling the picnic table (without seeing the old timbers it would be made from).
  • Steve Newland and his building crew from Organised Chaos for putting the bird-hide together in a day.
