Spring in Fiordland

Today at Nature Discovery Spring was certainly in the air. Isabella and Georgia found a very small egg on the ground " and actually it was very nice it was a nice green colour - I know what came out of it - there was a yolk and a baby bird - I think it might be a thrush egg." said Georgia
"A baby bird was inside it and hatched out of it - and the baby bird eats yolk inside the egg "They have to peck on the egg all night because the egg is so strong, and when they start to get bigger in the egg and then it hatches and then comes out the baby bird". said Georgia
T"hen they have to learn to fly." said Isabella


  1. Hi there.
    I am a teacher in the North Island, I was inspired by your teachers workshop in the Natural Phenomena Claire Maley-Shaw. I was hoping you could give me some tips to follow re camp fires, we have some children who have come up and asked me "Sharon can we make a Fire!" and produced two twigs to me. You can only imagine my delight. I have done some research but would value you input on how you have created a fire safe policy around your activity. Kind Regards

  2. Hi Sharon, we would love to help. Contact us directly at or phone 032497585.
