The Great Kereru Count starts its 7th year of monitoring

From First Up, 5:10 am on 18 September 2020

The Great Kereru Count is back today for it's seventh year. Whether you love their classic white singlets, their whooping wingbeats, or their awesome air shows, kereru are unique to Aotearoa and as kiwi as kiwi. As well as being real characters of the bush, kereru are known as the gardeners of the sky - spreading precious seeds of forest giants such as tawa, miro and hinau. Kereru Discovery is calling for all Kiwis to get out and count the birds for the next ten days. Tony Stoddard from Kereru Discovery spoke with Indira Stewart.
