New Images have been added to the site from this years visit. There where many places I wanted to return to in order to get some updated versions of older images but I didn’t manage to get to all of them. In some cases the weather was a factor (Much more cloud cover than usual) and in others I was just too busy relaxing.

The Nene has endured a long struggle against extinction. During the 1940s, this beautiful species was almost wiped out by laws which allowed the birds to be hunted during their winter breeding seasons when the birds were the most vulnerable.
