People are being asked to report a pest bird spotted in Papamoa on the weekend.

A post on the Bay of Plenty Regional Council Facebook page says a Rook was seen around Te Okuroa Drive.

“We need your help to try and locate where this pest bird is roosting.

“Rooks can cause major damage to plants and crops, digging up paddocks in the process.

“If you have seen a rook please note the day and time, where they were, how many your saw, what they were doing (flying, feeding, roosting) and get in touch with us by calling 0800 STOP PESTS (0800 786 773) or emailing
