Rare brown tui resident in Waikato

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:40 pm on 2 August 2021

A rare brown Tūī has been visiting a Hamilton backyard every day for the last month.

The yard happens to be owned by one of the trustees of the Mangaiti Gully Restoration Trust, and when trust co-ordinator Rex Bushell saw photos and video of the bird, he knew it was something special.

He talks to Jesse about the rare bird and the work the trust is doing
