Abstract

Pipit (Anthus novaeseelandiae) numbers on nine count routes in the Wellington region ranged from 0.16 to 6.22 per km on average. Estimated densities in regions with some favourable habitat varied between 1.0 and 2.5 per square kilometre. Highest numbers were in the hills south and west of Karori, and on the southern and western beaches between Owhiro Bay and Titahi Bay. Densities were lower over the rest of the region due to intensive farming, unfavourable plant succession pathways to bush, and urban development.
