When you walk through Hay Reserve in Pigeon Bay on Horomaka Banks Peninsula you start to get a sense of what has been lost through deforestation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. For here, in this tiny remnant of the once vast forests covering this landscape, not only is the visitor left in awe at the scale of the mature kahikatea, tōtara and mataī, or the density of the bush below these giants, but also the very notable presence of beautiful birdsong from the likes of the riroriro (grey warbler), korimako (bellbird) and pīwakawaka (fantail).
