Spring is here!

The arrival of spring has also seen the arrival of large numbers of Kaikoura's special seabird, the endemic Huttons shearwater (Puffinus huttoni). They have returned from their winter holiday off the coast of Australia, and are waiting for the snow to clear off their alpine nesting sites in the Seaward Kaikoura mountains behind the township of Kaikoura. They can sometimes be seen in their thousands over the spring and summer as they feed in the rich waters of Kaikoura.
