    Wellingtonians are being urged not to panic about a mysterious lack of Kereru

    Wellingtonians are being urged not to panic about a mysterious lack of Kereru


    Just three of the native birds have been spotted so far in the 2019 Great Kereru Count.

    In recent years, Kereru sightings averaged 150 a day during the annual September initiative.

    Greater Wellington's environmental monitoring officer Faline Drummond says they're not concerned yet.

    She says she won't worry about it until a few more weeks, but if they haven't turned up by the end of September that would be very unusual.
