Night Walk

We have built a short walk from the Lodge. We have marked the track that leads from the Lodge up into the bush behind our home.

The first section is set up so that you can walk at night, past glow worms to our kiwi listening spot where we have provided a box full of chairs. Lots of people have heard kiwi calling - and some lucky ones have also seen kiwi.

The track then passes the site of our recent kiwi release taking you through native trees in a 45 minute long loop back to the Lodge.

Our Own Kiwi Release

On October 31st 2010 we hosted a community event to release three adult kiwi into our backyard, about seventy people attended. The kiwi were brought here from Limestone Island, a kiwi sanctuary in the Whangarei Harbour. This was organised by Todd Hamilton, who works for our local Land Care group and is also involved in the Backyard Kiwi project.

Todd has been monitoring the birds and he keeps track of where they get to. We still hear birds calling regularly at night, although we are not sure if it's these ones or other resident kiwi.
