Posted on 8 December 2016

The most successful Greater Wellington Region rook control season in recent years has wrapped up with a total of one hundred and ten known rookery sites inspected. This year eighty-three nests at these sites were treated with only thirty-three containing eggs or chicks. The remaining fifty empty nests would have been built by male birds that failed to attract a mate. The programme remains on track to achieve eradication of rooks in the Wellington region by 2025.
