'Virtual' New Zealand birding tour
Driving to Auckland today was a breeze, with good music on the stereo, a brand spanking new Ford Transit, and what looks like a pretty good weather forecast for the next few days. So tomorrow we start a Wrybill Birding Tours, NZ 21-day birding tour, starting in Auckland, firstly heading north to get Northern brown kiwi under our belts, and then heading gradually south, through the North and South Islands, and even Stewart Island (right down the bottom!). I'm going to be guiding six people, and we hope to see a species list of around 155 species during this time, with roughly 65 or so endemic breeding species. I will be posting regular updates here, hopefully with a few photos, so you can come along for the 'virtual ride'.
