Description

A number of juvenile Gannets had moved from the nesting site on White Island down onto the slope where they were exercising their wings in anticipation of their long first flight. The slope is covered in what appears to be the iceplant Aptenia cordifolia . The gannet colony is very near the crater and much of the island is without vegetation. In this spot it seems iceplant is the only thing that will thrive.

Description

We did a tractor trip out on Cape Kidnappers with the kids. Awesome place, well recommended. An impressive sight (besides the Gannets), was the incredible visibility in the cliff faced of the crazy power of earthquakes. Saw 9 and 10m fractures, the 31 Napier quake was only about 2.5m.
