Weka count nights. Several evenings every autumn are given over to counting the weka mainly in our core area from the boat ramp to Tawhitokino Beach. This has now expanded to include other areas of interest due to identified Weka calls and sightings. These occur around sunset usually on a Saturday night. Dates and times are posted here on the website . The counts are weather dependant – wind is a particular problem as it may be louder than the wekas’ calls! It is a great chance to meet other like-minded people. There is always a get together for a debrief afterwards. We meet at the WekaWatch notice board near the Kawakawa Bay dairy. The times vary according to the time of sunset.
