Thousands of Godwit birds have arrived back in New Zealand.
The birds have completed a migratory 10,000km non-stop flight from the Arctic
The Eastern bar-tail godwits, or kuaka in Māori, landed at the top of the South Island on Tuesday. They will spend the next few days resting after their huge flight.
The birds make the mammoth journey across the Pacific from their breeding ground in the Arctic to New Zealand every year.
Last year, one godwit was tracked flying more than 12,000km (7,500 miles) from Alaska to New Zealand, setting a new world record for avian non-stop flight.
In total around 80,000 godwits arrive and move into harbours and estuaries across our two islands.
Below is an image showing when and where the godwits travel.
