I’ve always loved blackbirds, robins and little sparrows that scurry around my mom’s garden. I love blackbirds singing, I think it’s the best way to wake up in the morning. New Zealand has given me many things, including more appreciation for bird life. Ulva Island was a perfect place for me then! I’m by no means a birdwatcher, but I enjoy seeing birds that are so different from what I know. I love it. During our visit to Ulva Island, we saw quite a few birds! We saw robins, a yellowhead, a fantail (sadly no photo), wood pigeons, a weka family, black oystercatchers, kakariki, a kaka bird and a South Island saddleback (sadly no photo). It was awesome!
