This site is located on an extensive mudflat near the mouth of the Cowan Bay inlet, which drains several small streams to the west of Mahurangi Harbour. The site has been monitored since 1995 and currently mud content and macrofauna are sampled every five years. There are moderately high concentrations of mud at the site yet ecological health remains good.
