Birdwatching on the South Island and Chatham Island

Postby » Tue Oct 16, 2018 3:18 am


I would greatly appreciate a little help on where to go for birding in NZ South Island and Chatham Island.

I will be arriving shortly after christmas and leaving on the 11th of January.

I am a rather experienced birder, but have also travel companions that are beginners, so I am looking for good spots on the South Island (mainly from Dunedin and north) and also had the idea to bring the whole bunch to go to Chatham Island (if that make sense).

It was more than 30 yrs back when I last visited NZ so I really need to freshen up my knowledge on where to go.

Thank in advance fr your input and suggestions
