Last night we had a special visitor, Luke from The Camper Magazine.
He is writing an article on our night walk. We also had an Australian and three from NZ.
The Morepork or Ruru announced itself with a hunting call, people mistake this call for the Kiwi, it was answered by another with a normal call.
We saw one fly in the light of the spotlight. The Kauri trees look enormous at night towering like skyscrapers disappearing in the dark.
The Kauri tree had its usual cave weta and giant spider living in the cracks of the trunk.
As we walked back the Kauri snail were out feeding on slugs and worms. When we emerged from the forest the moon is in its full glory, we turned off our headlamps and walked back in the moon light.
An awesome night for all.
