Rotopounamu Walk

At the long weekend we had the opportunity to stay with friends at their bach in Turangi which lies at the south end of Lake Taupo so it is a fisher person’s paradise. While there we took the walk around the Rotopounamu Lake.

It is a lovely easy walk on mostly flat paths and is really lovely. The birds are amazing and I saw my first North Island robin.

I highly recommend it. The reason I had the opportunity to see so many birds was this little app I have on my phone called What Bird? NZ. We had a lot of fun using the audio and the birds really responded to it, quizzically looking at us trying to work out why we weren’t very bird like. The app is completely free and if you are a novice like me it was really handy.
