A unique ornithological document is created in a daily diary describing the linked lives of New Zealand fauna in a still-remote part of the country. It is a rounded natural history written from an intimate perspective with the rhythm of spring and summer nesting, falling two-thirds through the calendar year, providing a sustained climax to the book. The 48 species of birds observed are detailed in a glossary and nearly all are captured on camera in both characteristic and action pose, including rare bittern and fernbird.
