Weeks after the first photo of a kiwi outside the borders of Tawharanui open sanctuary was taken, video has been shot of the bird(s) in the same spot.
Landowners Alysyn and Brian Midgelow-Marsden decided to upgrade their kiwi-spotting kit after getting a night-time still shot on their Christian Bay property at the end of August.
They have since installed monitoring tunnels, extra pest traps and a video camera. “Now we’ve had at least two occasions with kiwi on film walking along the stream,” Alysyn says.
