  • mantis mantis I have had a similar experience with a falcon on top of My Hector in midwinter in the snow. The falcon came up from the Otaki Forks side, low over the summit and down into the Waiohine. There was a decent (by Tararua standards)wind blowing at the time. I saw another Falcon today (18/04/2012)at Otaki Forks

  • John Saunders John Saunders I concur. I was here once when the weather quickly changed and got so extreme, I was seriously considering dropping down to the bushline to wait it out with a cuppa in the old bivvy-bag. And then this jogger in shorts, T-shirt and a day-pack appeared. Go figure.
