|This Kiwi stretched out to sniff right in front of me|
A kiwi is likely to walk out in front of you at any moment. You need to have this in your mind the whole ten days it takes to walk the North West Circuit of Stewart Island.
We saw this one and stopped. It came out and sniffed all around us, before wandering back into the thick vegetation.
On this rainy day we could easily have been walking faster, with other things on our mind, and would have missed this magic moment.
