Eleven Years of monthly newsletters, over 275 pages with beautiful photographs
From plovers to penguins, from swans to seals, a goosey funeral, an avian love triangle and godwits heading off on their Thousand Mile journey, Michael Peryer of Waikanae beach has watched the bird life of the Waikanae river estuary and lagoons for many years.
Books are in Mik’s blood- his charming children’s books about the bird and seal people of the estuary entertain and teach young Kiwis about the importance of taking care of our heritage of neighbourly wildlife. An earlier book ‘Whatever Next’ has found its way to almost every country in Europe and further afield.
“Eleven Years’ has been purchased by bird groups nationwide, the Department of Conservation, Te Papa and some folk thinking ahead to Christmas for family bird lovers.
Photographs by top ranking Kapiti photographers provide a colourful and exquisite background to Mik’s riproaring or gently loving tales of the estuary.
