Media notes

Calls from two adult and two immature Weweia (NZ Dabchicks) disturbed and swimming away at Maungarei Springs Wetland on the evening of 30/08/18

Observation details

Two young and two adults swam together out into the northern pond from under the viewing platform, calling persistently. At least one walked awkwardly into the water from the edge of the pond under the platform. I suspect they were standing at the pond edge and took off when I arrived. The calls sounded like a fast quiet "weweia" rapidly repeated.
