Ambury Regional Park

Only about six kilometres from Auckland’s airport, Ambury Regional Park stretched along Mangere Harbour. As I opened and closed gates, I was at first disappointed by the bare landscape, but once I found the trail that fringed the bay, the swaying grasses and rocky shore took on a new look.

Pukekoes searched for food until I drew near. Then they took off like Olympic runners, their legs moving faster than windscreen wipers at top speed.
