21 December

There is a one egg nest with Rangers  keeping a good eye on it.  Trapping has been stepped up.
Now 2 new little fluff balls to join the other 2 older chicks and Rangers have candled the remaining eggs with strong lights to check they are fertile. Many other species have chicks too.
The female is still glued to her nest but her partner has persuaded her to share nest duties.  Local kaitiaki helped candle the egg and place extra chick shelters.
The intrepid pair have laid new eggs after their second nest was predated by gulls.
