SpotX Gamebird Spots in Nelson + Marborough Print

Waimea River Mouth/Pearl Creek







SpotX gamebird (117.3)
Permits:NZ Game Bird Licence.
Access:Turn into Cotterell Road, six kilometres north of Richmond on SH60, and follow the road to the end. The boundaries between the wetland and the adjoining private property can be confusing, so it would pay to check out the access with the local F & G office before heading out.
Hunting Tips:An estuarine swamp made up of tall salt-marsh and sedge. Watch out for the high tides; waders are recommended.
