Spring is of course nesting season for many of our Ulva Island Birds, and Saddleback are no different.
I first noticed the occasional Royal Spoonbill around Prices Inlet in Paterson Inlet many years ago
Cycle of Stewart Island Life
Walking around Ulva Island with our guests at this time of year we are continually reminded that spring is traditionally when the next cycle of life gets underway
By far and away the two most elusive of our local birds are our two Cuckoos.
Now the problem is birds monstering the young plants. So the rows of seeds are covered with “tunnels” of bird netting.
Sails Ashore has a bird table and small bird house just in front of our guests lounge, which can easily seen in our web cam
across on Ulva with a couple from Auckland almost the first birds we saw was a Saddleback couple busy home building
A few days ago I took guests to Ulva Island for the 4 hour guided tour packaged with both Sails Ashore & Kowhai Lane Lodges. I sometimes feel more than a bit guilty, as I’m sure I have the best office in the world
