Well... I didn't get to see any Kiwi on my trip to Stewart Island/Rakiura but definitely heard some very close by! However, being entertained by three Kaka right at the start of the Rakiura track definitely made up for it! I'm not a wildlife photographer (the Kingfishers in my back garden at home, mocking my attempts to photograph them, will confirm this) but I do my best when the opportunity is there and Stewart Island presents amazing opportunities, particularly for bird life! If you do find yourself on Stewart Island set aside some time to just sit and listen to the bird song, it is amazing! My personal favourite is definitely the Tui, I could listen to those guys for hours!
