SI Saddleback, Ulva Island

SI Saddleback Ulva 2010-02-25

Ulva Island, a short water-taxi ride from Oban on Stewart Island, has some good populations of the rare native endemics.  There aren’t too many other places to see South Island Saddlebacks (Motuara Island in Marlborough Sounds is another good spot).  Some of these birds are heavily banded.
