The BRaid Rivers Group had a great FLOCK Launch on 9th September with Rangiora Borough School bringing along their FLOCK.
The party was hosted by Rangiora DOC. Sarah Ensor brought along their giant wrybill to join the party. It was an important event and Waimakariri District Mayor, David Ayers, joined in the fun. Good work Rangiora Borough School.
Already their beautiful sign has been erected at the beach.
There is just a little space to tell you about a threatened shorebird that is quite common in the Bay of Plenty over the summer.
It is the banded dotterel. Most, but not all, of them breed in the South Island and come north for the winter. Some also go to Australia for the winter but they never breed there.
Some of them have just joined THE FLOCK
BREAKING NEWS from BRaid:
Twizel Area School has just launched it's own FLOCK. Well done to you.
Also a strange happening, their big FLOCK has split in two. One half landed outside the Waimakariri District Council building just a few hours ago.

The next few days are going to be very exciting. If you have something going on with your own FLOCK please let us know and we can share it with everyone.
