Good day to everybody who was patiently waiting for my return!
And, as I promised, I return to writing for my blog, which is as you know, all about New Zealand and its magnificent Nature.
I decided to start with my traditional Photo-Of-The-Week, and as a “compensation” for my long absence I will also offer this photo for free download at my Free Wallpaper Download section.

I took this photo at sunset on Pekapeka beach, which is a small seaside locality on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand’s North Island. In the right-center you can see the silhouette of the Kapiti Island. Kapiti Island is a birds sanctuary – it is home to native birds such as takahe, kokako, brown teal, stitchbirds, and tieke (saddleback), miromiro, piwakawaka, ruru, weka (hybrid of North and South Island subspecies), hihi, and toutouwai. The Brown Kiwi and Little Spotted Kiwi were released on the island between 1890 and 1910, and the island is now the stronghold for them.
