Banded dotterel slaying 'a devastating loss' for Kaikōura study

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Ailsa Howard has been studying the birds at South Bay for the past five years, and ramping up protection measures each breeding season to try to ensure their survival.

However, extensive efforts including surveillance cameras and cages around nesting pairs have proved no match for roaming cats.

Last week, RLBB (named after his coloured leg bands) was taken from the nest where he was protecting his hatching chicks. A cat was caught on camera with the bird in its mouth.

Efforts had been made to protect the nests through signage and by educating quad bike riders, freedom campers and dog walkers, she said.

Howard had now exhausted all legal means to protect the nests and was urging cat owners to play their part by keeping their pets inside at night.
