Finally after months of seeing these tails disappearing into the undergrowth this one wandered onto the track in front of me and posed for a couple of photos before wandering off :) It is about 3 inches long.

I put in common skink but it does not have those markings. So I tried brown skink but that lives Taranaki South.

A species ID would be most appreciated :)

Description from Wikipedia

Skinks are lizards belonging to the family Scincidae. Together with several other lizard families, including Lacertidae (the "true" or wall lizards), they comprise the superfamily or infraorder Scincomorpha. With more than 1500 described species, the Scincidae are the most diverse family of lizards.
