The walk starts at the carpark at the eastern end of West Tamaki Rd in Glen Innes. Below is the pond by the carpark which is frequented by a lot of birds, including ducks, pukeko and cormorants.
We took the Upper Bush walk which heads off to the Godwit Lookout, below.
There are a series of lagoons along the waterfront, frequented by godwits (I think?)
We walked out along the spit on the loop back to the car. As the tide was out you could walk about three-quarters of the way across the estuary to Bucklands Beach. The part of the spit that doesn't get submerged is covered in foliage, including yellow and pink flowers of the type below on the northern side, and tussock on the southern.
