The tide was going out when we visited Cornwallis on Sunday. Kingfishers (kōtare, Halcyon sancta) find themselves a perch on a rock, scanning the beach for any movement. With great accuracy they dart forth to pick up crabs and similar delicacies.


  1. Beautifully colourful! We have kingfishers here, but not of that colour.
