Alhough the Kamai Forest Park is not the ideal place for a June walk, the OCC Recreational Group decided on that as a destination this month; checking out the newly established Bulldozer Blade Loop Track at the of Whakamarama Road.

We then drove the short distance to Puketoki Reserve and did the long loop walk there before enjoying lunch beside the stream at the Reserve entrance

We marvelled at the abundance and variety of fungi along both tracks and were serenaded by a very vocal Tui and, finally, accompanied by a North Island Robin as we walked.
