Last year, our native Falcon or Sparrow Hawk (Falco novaeseelandiae), known to the Maori people as Kārearea was nominated New Zealand’s bird of the year.
As luck or good planning would have it, we Steve Richards and myself had been planning a trip to the Bay of Plenty to photograph the New Zealand Dotterels and then onto the Firth of Thames to visit the Miranda shore bird centre and on the way home we would be passing through Rotorua, the home of the Wingspan Bird of Prey Centre, a place best described in their own words as

Wings over Wairarapa Part 2: The full picture

Saturday 19 January 2013 was a wonderful day.


It started of a bit cloudy but became so hot and clear we couldn’t have wished for better.

The trip to Masterton started at 8 o’clock.

We parked the car at just after 9 am, in the 5th row of parked cars near the entrance gates.

It was about a 30 minutes walk to the airstrip.

What a sight!

Planes everywhere and so colorful.

The flying program was awesome.
