Dash Kitten Blog Giveaway Prize January 2014
Manukura the White Kiwi

Our Winner is number 42 as chosen by @BorisKitty WINNER :- Nick

Welcome to Middle Earth for a special Monday with our Blogoversary winner announcement and a super special video of Manukura the white Kiwi.

The video is more than most New Zealanders ever see as Kiwis are nocturnal (night time) birds.  The video uses the ‘night shot‘ on the Sony Handycam as it was dark in the Kiwi House at Purkaha Mount Bruce.  To adjust their eyes to what is kiwi night time, Mum and Dad had to wait patiently for their eyes to adjust (10 minutes) to see clearly.
