Kāpiti Island

I’m usually taking photos of Kāpiti Island, this time was lucky enough to spend a night.


Foreshore Kāpiti Island

Kapiti-KakaMS copy

Kāpiti has been a nature reserve/bird sanctuary since the 1890’s. The Kākā is one of our native parrots. Clever and a bit too friendly

The korimako (bellbird).

At night we went kiwi spotting. There is 1400 on this island so the breeding programme is working well, lol.

Manaaki one of our hosts seeing us off. Amazing host and a place to stay….
