South East Island - Chathams

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

It was a real thrill to visit South East Island, one of New Zealand's great nature reserves. We enjoyed perfect weather and were able to zodiac cruise the coastline within a couple of metres. A highlight was to photograph the Shore Plover, in its last natural home. The visit also allowed us close encounters with the rare Pitt Island shag and the rare Chatham Island oyster catcher.
