These birds were fishing by a bridge in Karaka. They weren’t the only one’s. They were joined by Pied Shags, Juvenile Black Backed Gulls and one sneaky White faced Grey Heron watching from the side.
Altogether, it was really interesting watching them. There were quite a few birds there, and I shall also mention there was ordinary seagulls.
They look very large to me, are they?
No they are not large birds, but for their size they have large wing spans.
