Background to the footage:  At the time of filming large numbers of Caspian, White Fronted and Fairy terns were nesting on the sand dunes from Pakiri and Te Arai through to Mangawhai.  The current Mangawhai Wildlife Refuge is the northern remnant of these dunes, the remainder are currently covered in pinus radiata plantations.
