Unknown bird calls at night

Hello all (forum newbie, 40 yr old electrician)

Got a high pitched chip-chip-chip-chip call coming from high up in the night sky, most nights here in the Warkworth area.
It's not a spurwing plover, it's a lot softer than that.

They seem to call to each other, answering from several directions.

Any idea what bird this is?

Maybe look at Cook's Petrel calls? I'd think they'd probably fly over you to roost if you are in Warkworth. NZ Birds Online has some.

Yes, I believe you're correct.
