Sink or swim Going down: This motor launch sank in Putiki Bay but was refloated at the weekend. By JEROME GAVELLE A motor launch that nearly came to a sticky end has been refloated after sinking into the briny last Thursday night. The boat was seen sinking in Putiki Bay, but was re- floated at the weekend. Maritime adviser at the Harbour Master's office Marc Davies, says they initially tried to track down the owner of the boat but has no need to contact them any more since the boat has been recovered. Cyclone Wilma's visit to park devastating By LYNDAL JEFFERIES King tide damage: The protected dotterels at Whakanewha Regional Park lost six metres of fencing and sandbanks as a result of the king tides and stormwater run-off. Aftermath: The muddy deluge caused by cyclone Wilma swept down the hill via the service area and flooded the rangers' workshop and offices. The clean-up at Wha- kanewha Regional Park con- tinues after major flood dam- age from Cyclone Wilma. Major slips on Gordons Rd contributed to the muddy del- uge that swept down the hill and flooded the rangers' workshop and offices, leaving 20cm of mud and water behind. Electronic equipment as well as filing cabinets and kitchen areas were damaged and the cleanup took over four days. Manager regional and specialist parks for Auckland Council Mace Ward says the Tarata track also has a sig- nificant slip but most of the bush areas fared well''. We still have some clean- ing up to do in the outdoor areas but we are much luckier than those in Aust- ralia,'' he says. The deluge also flooded the campground with many campers evacuating for a few days, Mr Ward says. The dotterels also suffered a significant loss of territory as king tides the previous week and stormwater run-off washed out six metres of fencing and sandbanks. No chicks or nests were affected,'' dotterel guardian Phil Tarr says. They have now stopped laying for the season, with four fledglings to date.'' But it's been a tough season for the endangered birds with more than a dozen nests lost, each with one to three eggs, at the beginning of the season, Mr Ward says. Avian predators, black backed gulls and harrier hawks are the most likely culprits.'' Mr Tarr says he has also found pukeko in the dotterel area -- just one of the multiple threats placing the birds under significant stress this summer such as horses, mountain bikers, kite surfers and people landing dinghies to walk dogs. It is prohibited to walk dogs in the dotterel nesting area. Mr Tarr has now imple- mented several strategies to offer the birds more protec- tion from predators, placing mesh around nests and small wooden tunnels for chicks to shelter in. He is hoping the chicks will fledge fully and contribute to the future survival of the species on Waiheke. He is urging people to con- tinue to stay clear of the breeding area while the chicks fledge.
