kiwi creche

there is a small lake about an hour drive away from here … the dept. of  conservation have fenced it and turned it into a kiwi crèche .. the young kiwi are kept there untill they are big enough to defend themself in the open bush .. the day i was there  10 of the little buggers were in there , nowhere to be seen as they are nocturnal..  i went there to go fishing , the lake has trout in it, and to walk around the lake … it’s about 45 minutes to walk around the lake and there is a longer bush walk ……here are some photos
