I really enjoyed this documentary on Kapiti Island. It was a real thrill to be able to visit again with my family after many years. I'm always glad to let people know about this" bird paradise" a real must see for any bird enthusiast! Its a great walk up to the summit also with fantastic views of the South Island and back to the mainland, a place I used to and still call home!

Thankyou for making this very special documentary about Kapiti Island & it's people.My family & I are local Paraparaumu Beach residents on the mainland opposite.We were privileged to stay overnight in March 2010 (a triple birthday celebration) & to experience what we had previously only seen & dreamt of from a distance.The history, present & future of this small but incredible part of New Zealand is something to watch, ponder on&support.It has a place in all of our hearts because it encapsulates the magic of our country & the need of shared vision to look after it.
