Native Birds in Kaikorai Valley
Birds in the Valley
Kaikorai Valley is home to many birds. Where there have been plantings of native trees and bushes they thrive. You can see a great example of this at the Kaikorai Common at the head of the valley and also alongside the stream track from Townleys road through to Donald street. Both places are alive with birdsong on the right day.
Many of us will have a bird feeder in our garden to help our birds through the winter and other times of food shortage, this is a great idea.
Predator control is another important part of supporting our local birdlife. If you have a bird feeder, consider also setting up a some traps in your garden, to make those birds extra safe.
Birds at the estuary
Kaikorai Stream feeds the Kaikorai Lagoon and Estuary. We see the estuary as an important asset to the people of Dunedin, many people use it for recreational activities. While not our main focus our mission is to get the cleanest possible water to the estuary so that the estuary can thrive. One day in the future we may begin to support efforts to rehabilitate this wonderful area.
