This is a Kaka, seen in this case at Zealandia in Wellington, an incredible ecosanctuary where native birds and animals are protected from predators. The birds are free to come and go and Kaka can be seen around Wellington incline of the house where I was staying. Amazing intelligent parrots!


Wellington Day

Happy New Year! I am just back from a trip to Wellington, a lovely break and a few photos to go through. The weather was very mixed, these are from a single day, starting in warm sunshine on a trip to Matiu/Somes Island, an amazing reserve in Wellington harbour, then sunshine in Days Bay with people swimming and then half an hour later getting off the ferry in a torrential southerly downpour.
