I have recently returned from an expedition to some of the New Zealand subantarctic islands (Snares, Auckland Islands and Campbell Island). These are unique habitats with some fascinating endemic birds and plants and well worth visiting despite being very remote, especially for those not based in Oceania. I am publishing weekly blog posts covering the trip and will add a master post with links to all posts once they are completed. http://www.tonywhitehead.com/wildlight/blog/
My daughter completed the same trip and the prior expedition which included Australia Macquarie Island. Her trip reports are being published at http://www.edinz.com
