January
The Common Copper has come to rest on an ear between the tall grasses and gather new strength for his next flight. Here at the Farewell Spit, a 32 km long land tongue in the far north of the South Island, a permanent and strong north wind blows from the Cook Strait. The dunes and meadows of the land offer hardly any resistance to the wind and the gusts carry away anything which can‘t compete against this wind. After its long break, the common Copper will be capable to resist these forces again.
