Police are urging Northland boat owners to go to extra lengths to secure their boats.

This comes after a spate of incidents where boats and outboard motors have been stolen in the Whangarei and Kaipara districts.

In the past two weeks, five outboard motors have been reported stolen in Matapouri, Tutukaka and Dargaville.

Police say the thieves have been carrying out their crimes during the night and targeting boats that have been parked on driveways.

Safety concerns caused by rapidly shifting sands and exposed rocks have prompted a local authority decision to remove the navigation lights on the beacons at the harbour entrance to Ngunguru.

Jim Lyle, the Northland Regional Council's Opua-based Regional Harbourmaster, says ongoing, large-scale movement of the sand in the area meant the lights no longer marked the actual channel entrance and they would be removed today to deter people from attempting to enter at night.

A migrating humpback

Volunteers at a Northland marine conservation trust have had a close encounter with a pair of migrating humpback whales.

Silvia Streit was finishing her morning coffee at the Orca Research and Education Centre, on the clifftops between Matapouri and Tutukaka, when she saw a whale spout in the distance about 9am on Monday.

Marine mammal expert Ingrid Visser, of the Orca Research Trust, identified the source as a pair of humpback whales so, joined by Mrs Streit's husband Walter and fellow volunteer Robert Lehmann, they set off in an inflatable boat to find them.

Shelly Bay, TV3

3 News understands a property developer has made an offer to buy 30 hectares of iwi-owned land at Wellington's historic Shelly Bay.

Business owners say the rundown area on the Miramar Peninsula needs investment, but filling it with houses risks closing it off to the public.

Shelly Bay is home to artists, studios and a cafe which all lease properties from the Wellington Tenths Trust.

Tthe former air force base was handed over to Taranaki iwi in 2009 as part of a treaty settlement. Now, businessman Allan Probert says developers Todd Property Group have made an offer to buy it.

...building houses on such an iconic piece of land is totally out of the question.

"We're talking a $10 million offer and that's pretty tempting for iwi who are the owners, but for us, building houses on such an iconic piece of land is totally out of the question."
