A plea from Ma and Pa Dotterel to dog walkers on North Piha beach.
Kia ora. We have hatched two chicks from our nest in the Marawhara / Wekatahi delta. Not understanding that the roped off area is for their protection, the kids will roam all over the place for the next 6 weeks until they can fly. Please keep your dogs well away from them, ideally in the wetted part of the beach in that area.
