tui coming back

Tui's are a bird that I wouldn't have imagined needs help - but they do and it is surprising where they used to be and where they are coming back to. From Stuff
"The Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust helped move 30 tui to the area last year, in the hope the birds would again breed in the region.
Trust co-ordinator Rachel Barker said the project started in 2007, with support from the trust, Ngai Tahu and residents.
She said the tui left the area 15 to 20 years ago.
Well done - plant more trees, that might secure their return.
