|About this Guide|
This guide to birdwatching localities in the Wairarapa is the result of the work, support and participation of local naturalists, Wairarapa businesses, nature photographers, and the publishing company Hopscotch Interactive.
Birdwatchers from all parts of the region and all walks of life have produced this guide. The information is the culmination of years of observations in the Wairarapa. Much of this information has been published in newsletters, articles, but never before has it been summarized in this way on the Web.
Particular mention goes to: Betty Watt (OSNZ Regional Representative), Colin Scadden, Tenick Dennison, and the members of the Wairarapa branch of the Ornithological Society of New Zealand.
