    During wet weather - I often wonder how the birds survive - a couple of weeks back it was raining heavily and I spotted these two sitting under a walkway beside a cattle loading ramp - clever birds staying out of the rain - there were eight tiny chicks under Mum and Dad - I opened the car door for a better shot and missed the best chick pictures as they moved off - but they were back an hour later when I went past - clever birds!

    Have had them come see what's going on whilst hunting, follow you for 50m or so then bugger off to where they came from. Bloody spooky when they fly past silently

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    This was on Ulva, probably near where you are talking about! Yeah speedy critters eh, beautiful to watch. Just a shame this one was only working in the shade, it was difficult to get a properly lit picture. I’m going to Tiritiri soon so hopefully get another chance there
