This trip will also provide us with the chance to see what is probably the rarest wader species on earth, the Black Stilt. This will be an experience and a privilege we will not soon forget if we are successful. (See Brent Stephenson's Waders of New Zealand page for more details.) This trip we hpoe will, in addition, give us our chance to see the peculiar looking Wrybill.

Also our friends in South Africa have set up a new facebook page called 'Wader Quest Watch - South Africa' to keep tabs on our movements, successes and failures. We look forward to meeting many of them later in 2013 when we visit the region.
So folks, we don't know when the next blog will appear, but as soon as we get the chance we'll be posting news of our attempt to see a spoonie!
