Kapiti Island, New Zealand, is a must visit if you ever come to New Zealand. To get to the island you will need a permit. Kapiti Island Nature Tours can organise all this for you.
Once on the island you can walk to the top, or go on guided walks. For me personally I enjoy just being, sitting, walking quietly and watching the native wildlife that we don't get to see often on the mainland.
Kapiti Island has an abundance of native birds including the saddleback.
I've been enjoying following a pair of saddlebacks that have a nest with eggs in a suburb of Wellington. Volunteers are keeping watch and the nest has been surrounded by predator traps to keep the nest safe from cats, rats, stoats, possums and hedgehogs.
