    Lake Rotokare Reserve

    January 31 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    What a place. The reserve is completely contrasting to the surrounding farmland. It‘s amazing what people will destroy to graze cattle. A heartening story of a community driven effort to preserve this wetland ecosystem.
    Birds: Tui, Kereru, Fantail, Hihi, Toutouwai, Tieki, Black Shag?, Australian Magpie, Quail, le’duck-ducks, (red-billed Black Swan things), Pukekos, (small white/black/grey and red head things), (cormorant thing)
    Plants: Mamaku (Black tree fern), White pine, Wheki, Kawakawa, Karaka, silver tree fern, Nīkau, Raupō, Harakeke (swamp flax), Rangiora, Rewarewa (New Zealand Honeysuckle).

    Rotokare kiwi reserve

    December 29, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Tonight's campsite was located quiet a way in the back country and by the time we arrived there in the afternoon it looked as we would enter jurassic park.

    There was a pretty masisve, high, metal fence built around it, up and down every mountain surrounding the lake and valley in the middle of it.

    And just beaide the lake has been a well maintained DOC grass area where we could pitch our tent for free. Great!

    So since we were there, we also took the 90 minute walk around the lake which gave us some great insights into the bush. Unfortunately we didn't saw Kiwis.
