24th Oct 2020 Thames and Miranda Trip

Why did we call San Francisco “Old Gold Mine” and NZ “New Gold Mine” ? We’ll look at the Gold Rush history. 

Thames is a peaceful quiet town now. During the Gold Rush era, it was a very busy place with Banks, stock market, hotels and a lot of people. A certificate from the Mineral School guaranteed a job in other countries.  Let’s review the history of Thames.

The bar tail Godwit, champion of Long haul flight. They can fly seven and a half day non stop to Yalu Jiang. Then to Alaska to breed. At the end of August will fly eight and a half day non stop back to NZ.  It is time to farewell the birds. They are leaving for Yalu Jiang in March. They are in their best shape and the male birds are in their pretty breeding feather. Let’s go to Miranda to farewell the migrant birds and hear their amazing stories.
