Sand dune cicada 2

Te Haruhi Bay, Shakespear Regional Park Te Haruhi Bay

After finding sand dune cicadas at Tawharanui Regional Park so easily yesterday, today I took my daughter to Shakespear Park on Whangaparaoa Peninsula today to see if her ears could pick them up as quickly there. Within 5 minutes she had one in her hand, proving me quite wrong in thinking they had disappeared from the peninsula. These photos show the kind of habitat they seem to prefer.
