Clutch #3. Mrs Pateke taking the ducklings for their first swim. They are naturals! Ranger Mireille took this video yesterday. There are still 3 eggs in the nest and we are waiting to see if they will hatch.
We are really excited to be bringing back brown teal / Pateke to Hadfield Clearing, near Awaroa in May. Have a read of Pete's latest tweet for lots of interesting info on the birds and the translocation.
