OP­ER­A­TION NEST EGG

Cape Sanc­tu­ary pro­tects and helps re­pop­u­late the en­dan­gered kiwi, and for my first morn­ing in the beau­ti­ful head­lands, we set out with a mon­i­tor and a guide to track down a newly re­leased baby. As well as find­ing him, I held him, checked his weight and fell in love!

TRACK DOWN THE GAN­NET

Cape Kid­nap­pers is home to the largest, most ac­ces­si­ble main­land colony of this beau­ti­ful and large bird with a wing­span of close to two me­tres. I ex­pected a big seag­ull – what I got was an oil painting.
