Tagged along with Eliane for a stroll checking 28 traps on Mt Tamahunga today along three trap lines.
Access to the forest across farmland to reach the bush with stunning views to the coast.
Large rimu, tairaire, tawa and nikau.
The bright small red berries of nertera carpet the forest floor in some place as we climbed the ridges and crossed streams in the valleys of Tamahunga bush reserve following the trap lines.
Then checking six coastal traps.
