This gallery displays photos from a tour to New Zealand in three parts! The first is from a couple of days on Chatham Island with my wife Anita. We had the Grande Finale there, highlighted by a close encounter with the endangered Taiko (Magenta Petrel) as part of our Oceanic Honeymoon… Part two is a short one; I and Jonas took the ferry from Auckland to Rangitoto Island in pursuit for Shore Dotterel and had great success. The day after that we set off on Part 3, a 21-day Wrybill Birding Tour led by Phil Hammond. The 8 of us had a great time with him as our guide and we saw just about everything possible from north to south and had 4 days of fantastic Pelagics too. The first 6 photos in this gallery, represent some of the most wanted or unique targets on the trip. The rest are uploaded chronologically. Read the trip report here, and the species checklist here.
